“I wasn’t sure you’d make it.”
That’s what his doctor said AFTER the check-up and AFTER the results of the tests were in and all was good. Ten years ago, my neighbor was in cancer world, struggling to get through treatment and fighting to live.
Today, he’s healthy, N-E-D and from the look of the smile on his wife’s face, cancer world is clearly in his rear view mirror.
Ten years of healthy check-ups. Ten years of wondering each year, if that would change. Not this year.
His wife stopped smiling long enough to exhale from holding her breath through the guarded optimism that all would be fine and now on to the celebration!
