The Dark Knight is fantastic!

My daughter and I went to see this last Friday, and all I can say is WOW! Great movie! Heath Ledger was superb!

What a beautiful sight!!!!!!

I have now finished the first round of cancer scans and each one had the same outcome . . . "No malignancy found". I have to undergo the second round of scans in the new year and then once a year for the next 4 years, but it's a huge weight off my mind getting thru the first round and not finding anything.

I needed to make a list of the tests I've had since May, just to justify how I feel. Here's the list:
- Biopsy (hand)
- Chest X-ray
- Pap
- Full Body CT scan (with drinking contrast dye and IV dye)
- Electromyography test
- Nerve conduction test
- Bone Density
- Mammogram & Ultrasound
- Barium Swallow (Upper GI)
- Pelvic Ultrasound
- Gastroscopy
- Colonoscopy
and so far, 58 vials of blood taken.

I still can't celebrate though, cause I still have a serious connective tissue disease that I will probably be on medication for for the rest of my life for, but at least I'm not fighting cancer, and the medication is making me feel better and able to function more normally again. I actually got out of the house and went to the mall for a little while last week and went to see a movie this week. It felt really good going somewhere that wasn't a doctor's appointment or the hospital. I finally don't feel so abandoned and lonely like I have been feeling for the past 7 months. I may get my life back afterall.
