A Little Better….

After lots of testing, worrying, drinking bitter cups of hospital coffee and looking desperately at the clock for a sign that time was actually moving forward – we got the news that my Dad’s cancer hasn’t spread. It is more than likely he will have to have surgery but that will be it.

It is an incredible relief.

I am frazzled.

Shell-shocked.

Glad all over.

Unable to believe it.

I can never quite accept good news for what it is when I get it.

But the sun is suddenly shining a little brighter and that is more than I expected today.

It’s all good.

  1. All I can say is, what a relief.

    My mom’s cancer was also like that (not prostate, of course), surgery and radiation, then the annual checks to make sure it hasn’t come back.

    It hasn’t.

    I hope it is the same for your dad.

  2. Your dad (actually, both your parents) are so lucky to have such a caring and forgiving daughter. The people who count are the people who are there in a crisis or when things get overwhelming, as you have done so again, for your dad.

    WHat a gem you are Sel.

    Many hugs, G

  3. Great stuff!

    You know what to do when you get good news like that?

    You’ve spent the last days thinking ‘I can’t go yet; I haven’t done/seen/been to … ‘ Then, when you hear all is well, you go out and do/see/go to … and give thanks that you still can!

  5. Fantastic news. Relief is so strange isn’t it? I often can’t believe it either. And other times I don’t realise how worried I was, how it had taken over my life, until the worry is removed.

    Glad about your news.

    Hope all is going well in your life.

  6. I am also reading in reverse order and trying desperately to catch up. I’m so sorry I missed this Sel but very pleased and relieved at the good news.

    It has made my day that you commented. I didn’t realise how worried I was either. I couldn’t sleep and I broke out in a rash. Suddenly the rash is gone and I’m sleeping again. The power of the mind, eh? So great to hear from you, Gina XXX

    LISA:
    Thanks for your kind wishes and prayers. I need them right now!!!

    No need to apologise at all. Sometimes it is hard to keep up with all the blogs we read. I am also relieved. WHEW!
