Dr. G called me later in the day. "I wanted to give you some good news, since you haven't had much of that recently. Preliminary results of your PET scan are that everything is clear; nothing is lighting up."
Such good news! The PET scan could have shown cancer creeping anywhere in my body, and until those results came back, "I'm a goner" was an unlikely, but real, possibility. But even my stomach wasn't lighting up, which meant that even if there was cancer there, it was in its very early stages, and probably amenable to cure by surgery. Woot!
Lots of people had been waiting for these results, and I spent the rest of the day making happy calls.
