Take that, cancer!

For people not on my e-list.

I just got out of the doctor's office. He says I'm stable. As in, the tumors aren't growing. I'll have two more cycles (this week and October 13-20), and we'll watch me and see.

FUCK yeah.

It could be months or years or decades. And I'm getting what I wanted, really: the reminders are there and I know I still have it, but I can live my life.

There's no word for what I'm feeling--ecstatic comes close--but they can do whatever they want to me now. It's not remission, but it will do.

My friend hugged me two weeks ago and said it wasn’t now. She was right.

Love to everyone.

I have no words, just tears, and you know how tears are holy and express the ineffable (not the eff-able). I am so happy for you.
