365 Things to Smile About Day 172 & 173. Clear Scans!

I am combining yesterday and today because it felt like one long day for me!  I had two oncology appointments, one each day.  And each one gave me half of a whole picture of my health!  While I had no physical reason to think anything had come back, the emotional side of things wasn't so logical and calm.  I am coming up to graduation and am seeing really good prospects for work ahead of me and that scared me!  Last time I was in this position (graduation and good job prospects) three years ago...I ended up being diagnosed with cancer just a few days before graduation!  So yes, I am nervous of history repeating itself.

But today it is completely official!  I am in good health and steaming ahead full throttle into life!!  Sure, I do still get scared and anxious and I doubt that will ever change.  BUT I am focusing on the good that is ahead of me and today I feel like I was finally given permission to completely throw myself into the move to my internship and job hunting and interviews without that nagging voice in the back of my head saying "what if..."!!  And that feels GREAT!!!
