Best. Day. Ever.

My results came back yesterday and everything was stage 1 so I don't need chemo or radiation or anything!!!!! I'm so happy and excited.  I was really worried, even knowing that they had already gotten all of the cancer out, six sessions of chemo is no joke.  Happy dance!  And when S came home we celebrated by going out for sushi at our favorite place.

Another great thing about no chemo is that I get to go to Italy next month!  My brother is going for a beer festival in Rome for his brewery and he is taking me with him!  And we are stretching it out into a vacation and will be going to Milan as well.  So anyone been to Itlay recently?  I went to Europe after high school and was briefly in Italy but of course that was over a decade ago, so I'm sure some things have changed.  Any tips or advice would be appreciated!

Waiting and Enjoying

Waiting waiting waiting.  I'm going to be getting my final test results tomorrow about the cancer.  The preliminary results were two different stage one cancers but its the final results that are important.  So while its unlikely that it would come back as stage 3 Uterian cancer instead of two stage ones, it is still possible.  And the annoying thing is that I called on Friday to ask a few questions and the nurse told me that they had my results in but they couldn't tell me, I'd have to wait for my doctors appointment on Tuesday.  Erg!

In Jude news, he has been getting cuter and cuter.  We have all been really enjoying our time together.  He suddenly can tell you what a cow, cat, dog, bird, lion, monkey, and pig say.  It is adorable.  He is full of smiles and happier than he has been in a long time.  He has started saying more and more, he says yuck the while time you are changing him if its a poopy diaper.  He will grab your hand if you are sitting on the couch to take you to go do whatever it is he wants to do.  He really is just the best kid ever and I can't wait to have him back at home with me.
