Cancer free

Quick heard it cancer free.
She used the words cancer survivor, cancer free and lucky all in a 10 minute span.
She also told me I was an overachiever who needed to "Knock it off", or I will be sick again.
I couldn't understand why I am still so sick especially if I am now in the clear.
She clearly outlined the why's and told me after close examination that it will be several more weeks until I feel remotely like myself.

I have not gotten the clear to be back at work, in some ways that is good as I am ill so much.

I will update more tomorrow but wanted everyone to know I am thrilled, well more than thrilled to not have cancer.
