While sorting through the mail yesterday, I noticed a thin envelope from Christiana Care. I just assumed it was another bill and tossed it aside. Then I remembered that I had to call my insurance company and doctor’s office to get a claim recoded, so I wouldn’t be responsible for a big bill. I figured that if this thin envelope was yet another medical bill, that I should just open it up and get all insurance and doctor’s calls out of the way at one time.
To my surprise, the mystery envelope did not contain a bill! Instead it was a form letter from Christiana Care. I only read the first sentence because that’s all I needed to…
Dear Alexis Milam,
We are pleased to inform you that the results of your recent breast imaging examination are normal/benign (not cancer).
Even though the techs already told me the results of my mammogram (normal), this confirmation letter is definitely the best letter I have ever received. It is currently hanging on my refrigerator. Bri noted that it is kind of funny/ironic that this letter came almost 1 year after my surgeon broke the news that I had cancer. Very true! I have so much to be thankful for, and once again I’m happy that my health is on the list!
