Alright so I was probably celebrating a cancer free diagnosis early.
I recognized the missed call phone number and my heart sank.
I’m not sure why I wasn’t waiting for a call this time. Maybe I was just so sure it was gone I didn’t think they would even need to call.
It took me by surprise.
I carefully dialed the number and was transferred to a nurse. It seemed like forever in silence waiting on hold.
I had no idea I was holding my breath until she said the pathology results came back as a scar. All clear for the original Melanoma! I let out a dramatic breath and smiled as big as I probably ever have. I thanked her for her time and said something about it being great news.
It is great news.
The best news.
It almost makes the pain and bruising a forgotten memory. Almost.
Next step: Stitch removal!
All clear! (woop! woop!)
