Hi! I'm Maggie. I'm going on Wed.Sept. 27 for my 3 month checkup to my onocologist. Please remember me in your prayers, that I get a clean report again. This will be my 3rd check-up. I have been through with my treatments since March 2000, everyone tells me that I need to quit worrying so much when it time for my checkups, but it hard. Does anyone else have these feelings? Well got to go and try to get some sleep. Talk to you all tommorrow. Maggie

Hi Maggie, How did your check up go today? Great I hope. I don't think you are alone in your worries, I too get anxious when it is getting close for my check ups and my family does too. I will keep you in my prayers. Stay well. Murphy

Hi Maggie, I just read your post about your 3 month check up. I am not keeping up with the web site as well as I should. Please forgive me for not responding sooner. I pray all turned out well for you. Please let us know your good news. Maggie, I think every one of will worry about cancer for the rest of our lives. There is just no way to escape it. All we can do is fill our days with as much happiness and love as we can and stay busy and let that day take care of itself. And the next day just get up and do it again. I am participating in a study at a local hospital, Kansas University Hospital. The study is following my cancer journey and will ask about the problems you are addressing right now. Life after therapy. The researchers are trying to find a need for follow up counseling. We all know already that the answer is yes. I read a post last night from one of us who kept a daily journal, keeping track of all her emotions, her meds, her body responses, what food she ate, etc. I think I will start that. It may help when I will be talking to someone just getting the news,to remind me of exactally what it was like for me. I hope that I get the chance to talk to others about this whole experience and help someone else. Like our Jane, I am going to volunteer with ACS. Keep in touch Maggie, Your Friend, Nancy

Oh Maggie, I am SO HAPPY TO HEAR that your 3 month was good!!!!Makes my heart happy. I guess we will all worry with each check up but as time passes, I pray it will get less stressful. My 2nd chemo "cocktail" got moved up to this Friday. The last one was really not too bad, I hope this one is no worse. I was really sick only about a week. Just felt yucky most of the time. I will be happy to be where you now are one day soon. Keep in touch, Maggie, I love hearing from you. Your friend, Nancy
