Today the oncologist's secretary called me to let me know that the blood test results are all clear - as I had hoped.
Thank you all for your love and support. It has carried me forward and given me the confidence to believe that anything is possible and, as a result, has given me this very positive outcome. I am free now of tests and doctors' appointments for another 6 weeks. Of course I'm still perservering with the herbal treatment and acupuncture provided by the wonderful Dr Chen of North Ryde and will continue to see him every two weeks for acupuncture treatment and a fresh dose of herbal tablets. It really is a wonder I don't rattle when I move! I take about 120 herbal tabs each day. They must assimilate into my body very quickly and start doing their good work instantly.
Life ahead looks busy - hunting for a new place to live as the family home is to be sold, housesitting for 2 weeks in the hinterland behind Byron Bay - and possibly a trip to Hong Kong to visit my daughter and her little family. And all without the dastardly effects of chemotherapy to deal with. I like it!
