1/2 way Chemo+ PET + Scan transition to Chem/Radio


I had my last chemo on May 2nd. Then we had a long break so my blood count could catch up. On the 14th, I had a PET and scan to appreciate the effect of the chemo so far. Dr.O'connor was hoping for a 30% decrease of metabolic activities around the tumor. She was out of town and I had to wait a week to get the result.

My appointment with her was set for Monday 21st at 9.45am. She called me around 9 that morning and asked me to come immediately. It was a stressful drive to her office; my heart was pumping. I was scared... Rigo reminded me about the real healer who has been taking care of me since I was born: GOD. (*)

I arrived at "the oncology and associate" office around 9.30am. As usual they took my blood and sent me to the waiting room N3. The longest 15minutes I ever waited in my life. Dr. O'connor came with a big smile, hug me and told me how great my attitude is and how easy I am as a patient. Yes! and...Honestly I had no clue of what she was about to say. She then said " no more cancer, 0 metabolic activity, nothing can be seen on the scan, nothing". what? I was speechless and I thank God. I could not wait to text Rigo ((smile) he had a meeting that morning). God is great and we are so so blessed.

Dr O'connor insisted we stick to the initial treatment plan. Of course we will. I will have the same chemo for the next 6 weeks(on Wednesdays) and Dr Salem will add radiation.

* Did I say I was scared? of course not (smile). I was sure God was taking care of me. yeah yeah sorry Aisha-GUILTY!

Sorry oh Lord, it's hard for me to see all the thoughts and plans You have for me. No matter how much love you show me, I still fail to trust in you all the time. Please fill me with your spirit of trust. I want to put my trust in You, meet Your guide to set me free.I want to have you in my mind all the time. Amen!
