Good news!

After I got my CT in March - 7 1/2 months ago, I never went in for a follow-up. I guess I figured they would call me if anything was wrong. I told a friend that and they gave me a lecture saying "Not so!".

Okay. Okay! When I scheduled this CT, I asked for March's results just in case there was a surprise in store for me and they gave them to me (they were good btw).

Today, I called in and asked when I would receive my results from last week's scan. She said, "when you have your follow-up."

Really? You can't hold my results hostage - can you? I mean, I paid for the scan... or I will. (And that is pretty much what I told her).

I got a call about an hour later. She said, "Dr. Cohn wanted to let you know that the results of your scan are good, but he still wants you to come in so he can discuss them with you."

Nice. I'll take that.

And I did schedule a follow-up appointment too...

Hey Tommi,
My name is Liz and I came across your blog early last fall. I am glad to learn that in your last post you were doing really well. Since it has been a while since you wrote anything I hope that you are out there living life cancer free. Please make sure to check your self regularly, I lost my grandmother who flaked out on her appointments and didn't realize her cancer came back, she couldn't beat it the second time.
That said, since your blog is a great resource for someone going through cancer I wanted to reach out to you to see if you were interested in a new online social support network (that I am the community manager of!) called I Had Cancer. It is a new and free social support network focused on connecting people based on experiences with cancer so that they can easily communicate with one another and share information. I would love to tell you more if you are interested, so please let me know! Because I was so struck by your writing I would love to send you an early-access pass with extra invites for others you may know going through this journey.

Either way, thank you so much for your writing. Take care and best regards. - If anyone would like info on I Had Cancer please email me.
