The cherry on the cake….

I waited to see my neurologist on Thursday afternoon with Neil. I was scared, nervous, anxious and felt sick. I just didn’t know what to expect or what he was going to say. He must have picked this up from me as when Neil and I walked into his office he said before any of us had a chance to sit down that he was very pleased with the scan result. I was instantly relieved and then he went through the details. My tumour has continued to shrink and it is now ‘tiny tiny’ – his words. He said that originally it was very big – which I knew – 3.2 cm in diameter. And now it was about the size of a pea. I couldn’t believe it. I cried as I tried to take this news in. He understood that I had been scared and the brain is difficult to treat and is ‘thee’ major organ. But – I was okay. It is well under control and he is really happy with how things look. So I will have a further MRI in February 2020 and review with the results.

I felt like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders. In that short space of time I felt emotionally exhausted and an overwhelming sense of relief.Β  I couldn’t stop smiling and couldn’t wait to tell the girls.

Two pieces of good news in the space of 3 weeks. I couldn’t have asked for much more. Now I can have a bit of a breather, a reprieve and really have an amazing family Christmas. A recharge of the batteries and I will be ready to fight the next hurdle as it comes along. I am not out of the woods but have reached a clearing. Perhaps Neil will let me put the Christmas tree up early!!!

“Trust yourself. You’ve survived a lot and you will survive whatever comes next”.
