When we arrived we got to see Dr. Surgeon right away. He removed the drains and the dressings and was really pleased with the way things were healing. That made me feel good to know since everything hurt so much I couldn’t tell if that was normal or not. Also, having those drains removed was like having my freedom back.

Mike and I drove home in a comfortable silence and then I just lost it and started to cry. I think it’s because I just felt this huge weight that was lifted from me. Without me saying anything, Mike just looked at me and said, “I feel the same way.” This had consumed us for so long and now all of a sudden someone was telling us that we were going to be okay. I explained to Mike that not once did I ever talk about the fact that this cancer could kill me. I had tried to never even let myself think about that. I suppose I thought that if I did that it would make it seem more possible and I just couldn’t let that happen. I always had it in the deep recesses of my mind or subconscious but never, ever did I ever consider it could be a reality.
