After a grueling 4 day wait (drs. office mix up) I got my markers back and they were normal. AFP 2, BHCg <1. I can now go on my planned Florida vacation without worry for now.
Congrat's!! I always love when the sigh of relief hits me too. Best feeling ever!
Know that the battle is won and you can enjoy some sunshine!!!
