Bloody Nuisance

Actually forgot to call pathology yesterday to get results, so I called this morning and we picked up the envelope. The nominees were tumor or a blood clot, and the winner is… blood clot.

We were driving out of the hospital as I opened the envelope, pulled off to the side briefly to read the report, then continued on driving. It was as if I had just pulled over briefly to read a map. “Well, that’s good” I said, then drove home. Other info included that it has reduced in size by about half. Nice.

So another saga over with. I guess I could get all reflective about it now, but I am happier just to take this one at face value and be happy. I am so grateful for everyone’s support during this time.

We are heading down south for the weekend with friends. Really looking forward to it.

It will be nice to be without cancer for a while.

I’ve never been so happy for a friend to have a blood clot in my life! What fabulous news – so that is why the sun is shining today! An answer to prayer as always – I’ll bring the bubbly for the car trip later :)

I have silently been reading your posts for about 8 months now and tracking your progress. I found your site quite by accident but now check regularly to see how you are getting on. You sound like an amazing person and it astounds me that even in your situation you always manage to think of others worse off than yourself. Your recent news has inspired me to comment and say I am so pleased and hope that you continue to have great results. I am sure your positive attitude and outlook have contributed to your progress so far. Keep up the good work!

Leanne, I guess you and the bub are driving then?

Picket, I’m honored that you have been following, and thanks for your comments. I hope I can concentrate more now on reflecting on the experience rather than reporting what is happening day to day!

“It was as if I had just pulled over briefly to read a map.” It was a map with a clear direction laid out for you: Keep on trucking with the peddle to the metal!

I think its good to see that with all thats going on, you still have the sense to pull over to read. The other day, while driving to work, I saw a blonde putting on some lipstick using the rear view mirror. I was so shocked, I cut myself shaving. This made me drop my coffee into my lap resulting in me taking my knees off the steering wheel, causing the car to swerve and knocking the mobile phone of my shoulder. Luckily I managed to regain control of the car and finished getting dressed.

Theres some real inconsiderate people out there.

Hi Cam, I’m the same as Picket – I stumbled across your blog by accident, but now find myself checking it regulary to see how your journey is going.
Even though I don’t know you, I was so delighted to hear that your latest results show a blood clot and nothing more sinister.
May God bless you and your family, and I pray that from here on in you will continue to receive only good news.
