The Good "C" Word

Well, I saw my endocrinologist (thyroid doctor)last week and she gave me some great news. I am now considered "cured" from the thyroid cancer I had. It has been 10 years since my last treatment, and all of my bloodwork and scans since then have been negative so I am cured. Dec. 15th will be 13 years from diagnosis so this has been a long time coming. I still have to take my medication for the rest of my life since I have no actual thyroid, but now I only have to see the doc and get bloodwork once a year instead of every three months (which is awful by the way getting bloodwork every three months.) I am so happy, now all focus is on to my surgery in January and stockpiling stuff so I don't have to go to the store for a few weeks after surgery.
