When the phone literally won’t ring…

Posted on

So I have the dumbest phone in the world. It is a Samsung Infuse and trust me, do not ever go near one. I have warrantied it 5 times in 2 years. Today of all days, when I was waiting on BIG news, the stupid phone stopped ringing and would only vibrate. After a day of carrying it with me to every bathroom break, every move I made more than two feet away from my desk and holding it in my hand while driving, my doctor finally called around 6 pm tonight.

Drum roll please…directly from the scan report: Negative exam. No evidence for residual functioning thyroid tissue or metastatic disease. Now I’ll pause for you to wooohooo, dance, fist pump, high five, or send me texts saying you told me so…




We do not know why my antibody level is elevated. We just know that my immune system is mad for some reason. There is a chance that something small (smaller than a peanut specifically) is trying to make a comeback and that is why my blood work has changed. The plan is to increase my thyroid hormone medication to essentially stunt anything that is trying to make a comeback and to repeat my labs in December. If the antibody level does not go down then he will repeat an ultrasound and see if I have any changes in the lymph nodes in my neck. As confusing as all that is and as unnecessarily complicated as this stupid cancer and the endocrine system are, this scare was just a scare and now I for real want to party!

Cancer sucks and yet I have been so blessed. Because I get to raise my kids and love my husband. I get to hang out with my crazy, supportive and loving family and friends. I have no surgeries and no more radiation in my near future. I can breath again, really breath again. Thank you for every prayer, every thought, every worry and every encouraging word. I love you all.
