Scan day.

I didn't bring my laptop with me so this will be a very short post typed on my iPad! Pop made out very well with his surgery. He actually sent me a text before I flew to NJ. Your prayers worked. Again!

My appointment with my dermatologist did not go as well as I had hoped. Dr. cool Guy removed a mole located near my primary melanoma. I should hear those results in ten days. I think I am their favorite patient. The lovely nurse asked me to hang out a few extra minutes so that the new nurse could meet me just in case I call with a problem. "You give her whatever she wants." yay! Apparently if you have melanoma, a dermatologist considers you to be a priority. Both the nurse and the dermatologist asked 100 questions about Mr. Spots and I. Apparently they think we need to get married. I explained that we've been a little preoccupied! ;-) ya know...melanoma being time consuming and all.

The eye doc appointment lasted--literally-- five minutes. He asked if I had any eye issues, if I could see the letters on the screen, and sent me on my way. I am a bit bitter that I missed Anderson Cooper for that!

Scans went well.... The juice I was forced to drink was as yummy as always. (Picture will be posted soon.) all in all, it was an uneventful scan appointment.

Tomorrow morning I meet with The Wizard to receive my results. Fingers crossed for good news. I am truly in live with my new normal life and I am so, so scared of losing scared. I don't want to be a full time cancer patient again. Siiiiiigh.

Confidence is important so I am going to believe in myself. Whatever it is, I will face it head on. I've got this.

But...extra prayers and good juju are much appreciated, as always.

All my love,
