I’m in remission!
I made it!
All that pain and suffering, that horrible months-long ordeal, that poison, that burning, the worry — all gone.
All worth it.
I was scared beyond words leading up to my visit with Dr. Allerton today. He gave me the news and I broke down. I cried like a baby.
I hugged him…, oh, it must have been ten times. I hugged a few nurses, too. I hugged The Loved One for an eternity.
There is, my dear friends, no more goddamned olive pit. I hereby discontinue the trademark.
