My very best to you. I know it sucks to wait but when it comes back undetectable it will be well worth it. The prayers for you begin. But they won't end. God bless you my friend. All zeroes tomorrow...

Hi mgl,
I'm keeping my fingers x'd for a good test result for you tomorrow. I know what you're going thru. I've had 5 tests thus far and went thru the 'butterfly' routine every time. My next test is due on 11th June and the butterflies are already starting. This cancer sucks.
All the best to you friend.

Hi Mgl.

I will say a prayer for you to get a big fat O tommorro. I know the stress of waiting for results, its not fun. Hopefully you will get a good night sleep and post after your appointment that all is fine.

Best wishes
