And. . . the winner is. . .

NED. No disease at all. All clean.


Apparently my swollen nodes are salivary glands - not lymph nodes. Weeks of freaking out over an infection.

Anyway, resume whatever you were doing.

Twas the night before 2.5 year scan

I think. I'm not sure where I am right now. I'm between being completely done with this part of my life, and being relapsed. For almost 6 - 7 weeks I've had two very swollen glands underneath my jaw, about the size of walnuts. Of course, to the normal, non-cancer surviving person, it's just the lingering effects of an infection. To me, and to probably anyone else that experienced the hell my wife and I went through in 07 - 09, it's a sign of panic. I go through all the treatment, the chemo, more chemo, SCT, rads, recovery, restarting to live my life as a once-again "normal" person, to have the visitor I never wanted in the first place to return?

Well, it may not be the case, I just may be paranoid. But we'll find out in the morning. I'm not sure of the stats of possible relapse at this point; I'm not even sure there are stats. (there are - it's just getting late, and I've had a few glasses of wine so I can sleep)

Tomorrow brings another day. We'll just have to wait and see what else it brings.

Maybe good news?
