Five is a lovely number

Be it known, on this 28th day of August in the year 2020, yours truly got a clean bill of health from the radiologist who read my mammogram and ultrasound. That’s five years cancer-free. Tada!

The oncologist reminded me some time ago that until I finish my current meds in March (?), I won’t really be done. Their start was delayed while I fought that nasty post-chemo cough.

I don’t see the oncologist until mid-September, but if the radiologist didn’t see anything on today’s images … I’m quite content, er … quietly ecstatic.

      Thank you. Happy to hear you’re still able to dance and didn’t get blown away.

        I think the most the winds got up to around here was maybe 40 mph. The places south of me got it far worse. I’m keeping the dance indoors, though, because now we have an excessive heat warning.

          We’ve had record heat, extensive drought, and fires in the mountains laying smoke over everything. I’m sure my A/C is going to gasp its last any day now. But I’m glad to know you’re safe.

          Here’s hoping that both of us remain so.

    Happy dance for sure! Five is definitely a great number.
    (Glad your AC is holding on – this has been the weirdest summer for so many reasons)
    Big grins all around
    (Are you able to get outside and distance and see grandkids at all? This being so careful is wearing on all of us. We still haven’t seen the youngest as we are hesitant to travel. Sigh. )

      Except for July 4 when we watched “Hamilton” together — very carefully, masked, socially distanced, etc. — we’ve not gotten together. Son calls almost every day. Always has. But otherwise, I’m here alone, perhaps hypercautious, but very concerned about what Covid could do to someone my age.

    That sounds pretty great 7 months later. Congrats!

      I’m seeing the oncologist in two weeks and the proposed plan is to stop taking the letrozole then. That should mean returning to whatever is “normal” for someone my age,
