Bad News Hodgy

No one likes to be the bearer of bad news. Especially me.

So, if you were hoping to say goodbye to Little Hodgy, I'm sorry to say you're too late. One day Little Hodgy was there, encroaching on my heart's real estate.

And today?

Today, Hodgy's GONE. Picked up and moved out. Not a trace left behind.

That's right folks, as of today, I am CANCER FREE!!!

The official scan read: "No suspicious uptake."

No mass. No elevated numbers. Nothing.

I kinda feel like Superwoman. I mean, seriously. Look what I accomplished by going against the oncologists, against the media, and against the better judgement of most people I know. In eight weeks.

I fucking did it.

Peace out Hodgy --  may you rest in hell!

Today, I just stole my Thunder back!

Today, I AM a champion.
