Bad to Good to Great

I left work early today with a headache, nausea and chills. On my way home, I sobbed like a baby, "I don't WANT to be sick."

But after a 2.5 hour nap, I feel almost human again.

I just talked with the nurse at City of Hope and got some good news and great news. The good news is that MOST of the bone marrow biopsy test results are in. So far, my bone marrow is cancer free. We'll have the final results next week.

The great news is that the spinal tap results show that my central nervous system is clean! This banishes my greatest fear. A couple weeks ago I whined to my husband, George, "I've already lost my looks. I don't want to lose my brain too." He squinted his eyes and scrutinized my face for several seconds before pronouncing, "No . . . you haven't lost your looks yet."

Word of caution to other husbands who may be reading this: Be careful about skipping a beat before reassuring your wives about their looks.
