Today I went to the doctor in the morning. I had an appointment at 1:30 PM but I have to cross the city and now that I feel better I think it´s not worth it to pay a taxi from my house to the hospital. The doctor found me fine, in complete remission and I will have to have a scan made to see if I can take the catheter out. The catheter was put in my body years ago for my chemo. I still have to have some exams done plus the scan and then go to see her again. I went to the health insurance to see about the copayment and I had luck there too. It was not too expensive. I am so very happy! But I came back tired. It´s 9 PM and I´m just begining the day Hi, friends!

I was mostly pleased with the doctor´s words: complete remission! It amounts almost to being cured.

I hope you are able to get that out soon. My friend is undergoing cancer treatments right now and says it hurts her at times.

The catheter was needed for the chemotheraphy. Sometimes I feel I do not want to take it off as my kind of cancer is only on remission, not cured.
