Congrats on your clean scan!

I don't think that nervousness ever completely goes away. I am at the point now where I don't freak when my doctor says it's time for a scan, but once the scan is done, then I get stressed out waiting for my appointment to get the results. My mom is a cancer survivor also, and I think I get more anxious about her results than mine.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, and living with Stage IV breast cancer since 2007.

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

I can relate to that Su.
I had a,luckily, benign tumour on my eardrum and after 15 months of either very muffled or non-existant hearing I had a little op. and my hearing was restored.
It's wonderful, I didn't realise how much I was missing.
I'm so glad you can wear hearing aids, they didn't work for me.

For me, a small victory is just waking up in the morning realizing I've had a really good deep sleep and have been dreaming again. I miss those dreams sometimes. Another thing is hearing the birds singing in the morning and the frogs peeping at night. It means wearing hearing aids and I miss those sounds when I don't.

Reading these makes me realize anew how we often take these little blessings for granted when we're in good health. I'd never have dreamed "BC" that one day I'd have tears of joy over something like waking up in the morning and realizing that I was feeling totally comfortable w/ no discomforts or pain. That's just one example! And I'm sure everyone on this team have had those victory moments! Thank you for making us remember these, Su.

Only fear the Lord and serve Him in truth with all your heart, for consider what great things He has done for you. (I Samuel 12:24)

The Pepcid my oncology nurse recommended is helping! I can finally eat without spending the entire day burping. I hope it still works when I start my next chemo cycle. The nurse said I could bump up to twice a day if I need to at that point.

emoticon Yum!

That's no "small" victory. Pretty huge. It deserves a thread all by itself. Anyway. emoticon

The day my scars where healed and dry enough to wear the spongy little pads I bought to wear under my clothes.My tumor had to break down and fall apart inside and outside. Quite a mess-pieces falling off of you.But at last the day came when it was small enough and dry enough. Now I have two boobs like everyone else!!My little victory!!

Work like it's all up to you!! Pray like its all up to GOD!!!!
