Tuesday

lotterywonderwomanWe all dream of winning  the Lottery. Thousands even millions of pounds.

But today Mavis and me joined those dreamers. We have won a prize that even the national Lottery could not match with however many millions they offered.

The news at  The Marsden today was priceless. We got  bloods all done early  today then at  10.15 we were called in to see the Doctor. Sam Smith an Australian Doctor. A very nice man. Apart from  the usual  medical discussion we had a nice chat . He said you are having a scan today arnt you. Yes  we said. Would you like to know the results today or wait  until your visit in 2 weeks. Mavis  said  today would be nice but  happy to wait.

Next we walked the corridors  and up in lifts to  the CT  Rooms. Booked in a took a seat. After a few minutes she was called in for the dye infusion and more waiting. Soon  called back for the Scan. With that over we made our way back to our ward. collected a beeper and made our way to the restaurant for coffee and a bun. later  while reading magazines in  our waiting room and a short nod off session at 1.30  Mavis was called in for the drug. This is the earliest call yet. We  said gosh we could be out of here by 2.15.

What happened next was totally unexpected. We can see the Doctors entering  a room  off to the side of  our ward. They go in and out for meetings  etc. We saw our Doctor go in and he gave mave a cheery wave and a smile. Some time later  while the nurse was administering  the drug he squeezed between her and sat on the chair beside Mavis. How you doing he asked Fine Mave said. He got in real close with a strange look on his face. he said I have something to tell you.

Oh no mave said Good or Bad. He said stunning news .You have even more shrinkage. But not only that at our meeting  your scan  results show that not only have you  shrinkage in your major  tumors but  some have even shrunk  so that now we cannot  even see them anymore. You are some amazing woman. mavis welled up and almost burst into tears. He said I thought you would want to hear this news now. OK .With a  smile he left us in a daze. The nurse said that’s amazing mavis we don’t often get news like that. The patient next to us clapped and said well done  that s brilliant news.

So today being the 2091 first day since diagnosis 6 years back now has beaten the 90 day prognosis by 2000 days. After 6 years of pain grief misery and fears we get this in our laps. So you can see why I say we have won more than a lottery win.
