It ain't over till it's over

It took three weeks, many phone calls, and a fair amount of head-banging but the Large, Highly-Regarded Medical Institution finally coughed up Mr B's lab report. And the results were good. They found one more teeny little spot that has to come out and that'll happen next week.

Then I guess we're done. His regular doc told told him the other day that he's pretty much cured. So we can just go on about our business, right?

Except for that constant looking-over-the-shoulder thing.

Is it every really over once you have something like that? Even when they tell you it's gone?

I'm guessing the short answer is no.


  1. It's never gone. Short answer, long answer, you are always looking over your shoulder.

    Love your blog, btw. From a lurker. :-)

  2. Yah, the answer is no. I had kidney cancer that wasn't confirmed until the kidney (or rather huge tumor in a kidney bag) came out. I've been told that at this point the likelihood of recurrence is tiny, but I am still nervous about my upcoming scans. And, I dreamed the other night that it was back. Maybe one day it will recede into far memory...

    Great news about Mr. B though. I'm so happy for you all!
