Journal entry: March 13, 2012

I was getting ready to go to Gilda’s Club and I got a message from my Oncologist’s office to give them a call – it was 4:55pm. I thought maybe something was wrong – I just had an appointment a week before and they had already called to tell me my labs came back fine and my tumor markers were normal – but maybe the labs weren’t really fine – maybe they found something else….etc, etc. So, I called right back and waited anxiously on the line for the news.  They finally told me that my Calcium and Vitamin D levels were low, so i need to make sure to take supplements. Whew- I got worried for nothing. But, that’s where I’m at now – little things like a phone call can be so scary, because in the back of my mind there’s always the possibility of the cancer coming back. I guess that will always be there, but I just have to live with that fear and not let it get the best of me.

*Note:  Gilda’s Club is a free support community for anyone touched by cancer. There are locations in various cities throughout the United States that provide a variety of groups, activities and resources to adults, children and families.  For more information, please see their listing under my Resources section.
