Five Years -- Blog Retirement (fingers crossed)

Been years since I've posted, almost did at year two of my remission but xkcd did it better than I ever could, so I let it go.

Had my five year CT scan a few months ago, cancer is still in remission and that means surveillance is now tabled.  No more annual CT scans.  That may not sound like a big deal, but it is to me.  These tests caused anxiety and depression, as well as flooding me with the unhappier memories of my cancer years.  The CT scans were not fun at all.

I'll still have some tests with my annual physical, but the big anxiety producing test is over for now.  Of course I'm not saying I'm absolutely cured, or that I'll never have cancer again.  But I'm in remission now and that is as good as things can ever be.  Overall my life is and has been very good.  That includes the years before, during, and after cancer.

So this is goodbye, for now, from this blog.
