Fairly Good

October 2, 2009 · 7 comments

As in ‘fairly good news’ from my surgeon and the pathology department. Fairly good.

Fairly good.

Better than ‘not so good’ or ‘not good at all’ or ‘bad’.

Fairly good.

What that means, in real life, is that one of the 6 nodes that they removed in this latest surgery had a small amount of tumor in it. One out of six.  So yes, fairly good.

But not really good.  Or great.

So we have an appointment scheduled with the medical oncology doctor on the 13th to find out exactly what our next steps are.  Not sure if it will still be interferon, or if it will be something else. Wait and see, as usual, I guess.

In the meantime, I will get better, get stronger, and be ready to kick the rest of this cancer’s ass out of my body. (which sounds really strange when I write it that way, but you know what I mean, right?!)

You CAN and you WILL kick cancer’s freaking butt!! Whatever I can do to aid you in training for the butt kicking let me know! More cookies or soup or whatever! I can also lend an ear or a shoulder too. 😉

Definitely concentrating on the “Good” and then “Better than Good” and then, “FREAKING GREAT” sequence of events! Sending healing vibes, with a bit of “funny” too, your way!
