I won't lead you on (I'm not that kind of girl). Here it is: I am over-the-moon happy to announce that A Little Loopy has been reinstated as a cancer-free zone! We FINALLY* received the good news phone call we've been waiting for since around this time last week. (Waiting for medical test results...seriously...is there a slower mode of time?) The results of B's last test came back negative (which, in medical terms, is good)! Lymph nodes are clear! This means, everything is clear! YAY!
I am so beyond relieved, I can't even begin to tell you...although I'm sure you can imagine. The last 6 weeks or so have been some of the most stressful that I can remember. What's weird is how everything hit at once. Out of nowhere, we were hit with an unprecedented amount of work at the office AND with B's devastating diagnosis at home. I've been trying to stay afloat and as positive as possible through all this, but it hasn't been easy. More time at work and commuting + less time at home + more stress + less sleep = 1 sad little Nonnahs.
I've been doing my best to stay upbeat, and I think I've done a damn good job of it to tell you the truth, but I have to admit it's been taking it's toll over the last week or so. Just a general burntoutedness, I suspect. Thankfully, all this hellishness shall soon be over! I was already able exhale a ginormous sigh of relief yesterday, and the end is finally in sight at work! Friday is the filing deadline Dis, Nasus' K, and I have been working toward (or is it against?). Woo-hoo! I plan to celebrate by sleeping as much as I can this weekend. It doesn't sound like much of a celebration to you normal folk, I'm sure, but sounds absolutely heavenly to someone who's mentally, emotionally, and physically exhausted. I mean, worry-free sleep. For hours. Not having to set my alarm for 5:00am to go to work. Not having medical test results looming over my head. Just sleep. I honestly cannot remember the last time I've felt truly rested. Aaaaahhhh... Oh yeah, and some wine may or may not be consumed as well. Margaux, get your toasting glass ready!
Oh and while I've got the glass raised, I want to toast you all, for being so supportive through all of this. To friendship! Your comments and personal emails have meant and continue to mean the world to me. Thank you, thank you, and thank you from the bottom of my heart. I wish I could give you each a great big hug in person, but until that day comes, please accept a big, heartfelt *MWAH!* Love you guys!
* Waiting for medical test results…seriously? Is there a slower form of time known to man? Janeane Garofolo one had a bit about how Stairmaster time was the slowest time in the world, but I think she may wrong. Then again, it may be because I don’t use a Stairmaster.
