There is always anxiety about a checkup. BUT .....Don't give yourself ajida that far out! I WILL allow you the night before.
Did anyone else see the interview on ABC Good Morning America where a survey was taken of people with heart problems and the ones with the best attitudes were almost 17% more likely to be alive in 2 years?
Good attitude = Good life = Good health

Weeks away? Months away? Come on guys. That’s negative thinking. You shouldn’t let the next checkup color your life while you are clear. I think for most of us there are going to be checkups for the rest of our lives.
Sara Anne just got the all clear and is breathing easier now. Think of her as a roll model or maybe the president of the Good News club. I want to be in that club and enjoy every beautiful sunrise. Rejoice in your last all clear report.
