Okay - the stress test is done and I passed with flying colors. I worked up a wonderful sweat in a fairly short amount of time, but the doctor said that I did very well and am a great candidate for surgery - so that is good news.
The next test is at the end of the week, it is a breathing test and my doctor said that I should pass that one easily as well. Just another step in the process - all moving forward to getting this cancer out of me.
It is still a very strange thing to be sitting in a doctors office, talking about cancer with the doctors looking at me going - you never smoked, your only 38, this really doesn't seem right - and it doesn't. But I am continually reminding myself that even though it doesn't seem right, I am blessed to have the doctors that caught this when they did. I am now anxiously awaiting the meetings I have next week to see when the surgery can be scheduled and what the next steps will be.
Thanks again for all your prayers and support. More posts to come later.
