Oncology: The results are in
September 10, 2019 1:40pm CST
I just got a call from the oncology nurse a little while ago. My blood work results are in. Tumor markers stable. Liver & kidney function normal. All other tests normal. Cholesterol & triglycerides the best in decades! Coral... For the win! (Note: Though the markers are stable and everything is good, I just want to remind everyone that with neuroendocrine tumors, also known as carcinoid cancer, there is no cure at this time. When the tumor markers are stable, it means that there is no activity that is detected for growth. And that is a good thing. I celebrate those little victories.)

Thank you, Vanny. :-) Now, after vacation, I'll schedule my scan before the end of the year. I'll breathe easier after those results come back. I have to get my flu shot and dental appointment before I leave for Aruba to meet @marguicha. Want my smile to be as bright as it can be. When I return, I have two replacement crowns to get, my wellness check and women's appointment for mammogram, and then the CT scan before the end of the year. I put so many things off that it all piles up and makes me more anxious. I have to stop doing that. LOL Hugs to you.
@TheSojourner You already have great smile. :) Don't worry. I was wondering if I / we (DJ and I) can upload some of your songs. We would love to Coral. Who knows you will become a Grammy winner and we will get famous too. This is an offer you should seriously think about.

That is good news and stay healthy as much as possible and I think those cancers will not bother you if you have that clean health bill. Just watch out that they are at times sneaky little things that just wait for the right opportune to spring back at you.

Congratulations! I just (literally) breathed a sigh of relief. Carry on.
