Mammogram: Clear.

Chest X-Ray:  Clear.
Blood tests: Clear.
Symptoms: None.
Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I reached my third-year anniversary cancer-free.  And, as those who know hormone-negative breast cancer understand, the third year is the biggee.  My chances of recurrence go way down now.  Because this is an aggressive cancer, recurrences hit between one and three years after diagnosis and decline rapidly after that.
I am a happy woman.  And thankful.

    Best of luck! It feels odd to wish time would hurry up, doesn’t it? Let me know when you hit the big 3. Survivor stories are the most encouraging, I think.
