Relief and Gratitude

Today Mrs. Yurodivi had an appointment with her oncologist and also had a report from the pathologist. (Aside: I never hoped to know this many '-ists' in my life.) The oncologist was encouraged, having talked with the radiologist already but having no concrete results. But the best news came later, when Mrs. Y talked with the pathologist: the results were completely clear; nothing but scar tissue and fluid.

So thank you all (I know at least one of you read this; I understand my comboxes are messed up, and I'm working on that) for your prayers. They mean a lot to both of us. And now all there is to do is to get ready for the next 10,000-mile checkup.

The hardest part seems to be the time of not knowing. I'm glad the results were clear, and that you've been able to talk to (or at least write to) your wife about all of the what-might-happen-ifs.

Good for you to have found an -ist who would not issue preliminary opinions. You'd never quite believe the final opinion, always wondering of any of the other outcomes in the differential diagnosis might actually be the truth.

Once a cancer patient, always one--Mrs. Yurodivi will experience these symptoms again and need your strong support when they recur. From our brief meeting in Alabama, you seem to me like the sort of husband that will be there--good for the Mrs.

Take the trip, whether or not you eaten all your Lean Cuisines.

saw her parents put off too many vacations...
