He's says I look "great". I am going to see an ENT to see about clearing up this allergy/sinus crud. Also, I am going to have an EKG just to check my heart. I requested it -- I just feel like since I did A/C I ought to make sure there wasn't any damage. Can anyone tell me about this procedure?
Next time I see him will be at 5 years (April). I will have all my scans then and he would declare me "cured". I definitely take that word with a grain of salt, but it sure was wonderful to hear...

{{Julie}} I am sure you do look "great"! so glad that appt is over and everything is good. I don't think there is much to an EKG, if I am correct they just put little stickers all over your chest and record your heart activity. If that's not right I am sure I will be corrected in record time. Happy Dancin in Louisville

Hey that is great news Julie!

EKG is just that- stickies and wires on your chest- you lie there for two minutes and then you are done. You spend the next hour trying to get the glue from the stickies off!

Good luck with that too.

Great news! As Jessie said, EKG is piece of cake. I too look askance at docs who say "cured." Though in my heart, I pray it's so. Nail polish remover will take off the glue - if you can stand the smell!!

Your oncologist and mine must have the same verbiage.  "You look great".  I got the same response last week.  It has been 5 years for me so now he is saying I don't have to see him for 1 year - unless I feel I need to.  Because my Primary Dr does the annual physical in August, I will see ONC in March.  That made both him and me feel more secure.  It's always nice to get the all clear, but I told him I was afraid of separation anxiety. LOL.

I agree with Deb, we need to see pictures of Hannah again.  She must be getting so big.  What a cutie she was in St Louis.

Take care of both of you and enjoy each day to the fullest.

God Bless,
