I have an Official Blankie Of Awesome And Win!

Friend Pens the Lotion Slut was so enamored of Inkgrrrl's phrase "blankie of awesome and win" that she sent me "Jo's Official Blankie of Awesome And WIN" today in the mail.

It is the softest blankie ever.

I will never get it out from under the kittaynz.

Also, I have NEGATIVE LYMPH NODES and a NEGATIVE PET SCAN and a NEGATIVE MRI and oh, by the way, that PET shows a SMALLER LUMP THAN WE'D EXPECTED.

So, all in all, the day's been a good one.

She says calmly, as fireworks shoot off and bands blare and drums pound and people dance in the street.

The people who love me are all so nice, I wonder if maybe I might be nice, too.

Congratulations on being so negative. I don't know you personally, and mainly lurk on your blog, but I've been praying for you in your journey. I'm so thrilled that things are looking better for you. Keep us informed!

What great news! Fantastic! That faint sound you hear is the roar of approval from my place in Jerusalem.

Now, if you wouldn't mind... please share some of that good karma with me. I just had a repeat head CT this morning.

Hugs and prayers and all the good stuff coming at you from Jerusalem.

(WV: ounsh. The sound of cheers flying from one side of the Atlantic to the other.)

Polly said...

Whoo!!! Excellent!

Karen said...

great news! get the docs to do a bone scan while they're at it for extra comfort of mind (or did the PET and MRI scans cover that?).

Of course you are a nice person. Other people know this, you should too. If anyone ever tries to convince you otherwise I will personally kick their ass, even if that person is you. Except that wouldn't be a nice thing to do so never mind. (But you are a nice person.)

messymimi said...

Of course you are nice.

And I am nuts, as my kids will tell you, as I jump and dance to celebrate.

Prayers will continue, of course, that your treatment goes smoothly and your recovery is easy.

jamiegirl said...

That is the best fuckin' news I've heard all week! Yeah for Nurse Jo, rock on with your negative tests results and "smaller than thought" lump! I'm doing back flips for you!

JacquiBee said...

phewwwwww! That good news bought tears to my eyes. So I guess I'll be putting the kettle on for your visit to the shakey islands sooner then.

Bardiac said...

So we can demote Cap'n Lumpy down to buck private lumpy? (No caps, either!)

Great news. I'm glad to hear it!
