Hey Marian, I had 8 of 10 positive and still clear. Surgery was a year ago last Oct.

I had one positive gland. Surgery was 20 months ago followed by a rather simpler type of chemo than you are getting. We are not as advanced in Ireland as you are in U.S.A. I also have a "slow" type of leukaemia. I'm still still going strong. I returned to work again today and feel pretty good. Keep your heart up . You are now officially added to my prayer list. V.C.

Thanks for your reply and your prayers. Started radical chemo last week, so far so good. All the success stories are so comforting.
