Great News

Great news today. Husband cancer free. Last month was the one year anniversary of his surgery. After the doc said "cancer free", he said some things like "no lymph nodes", "rectal surgical site looks great" (even showed me the picture), "removed a few very tiny polyps, but nothing to worry about", "see you again in 6 months".
After I heard "cancer free" i think i just zoned out except for the phrases above. I didn't even ask what he meant by any of them.
Thank you guys so much for your prayers and well wishes. I could not have survived this without you and this site.
Will check in every night to see how everyone is doing.
I know this might sound crazy but just for a second I hesitated about posting our good news. It really makes me feel bad for those still fighting. But then I reminded myself how much hope I had after reading people like RunnerZ, Sponge's stories about surviving.
I'm still scared...Will we ever stop worrying about this coming back. Probably not, but we have learned to take one day at a time.
God bless all of you...

Ditto here Kaye. Great to hear!!!!I think the encouragement offerred by any good news is a VERY important part of our "family" life here.
The sad and bad news is instigator of so much support and love offered by our friends here.
The good news is the "fuel" that drives us all on knowing that this demon can be beaten.
Ok, "can" may not be a finality...the fear in many ways still remains..but achieving NED is within our grasp. The good news many post here is what we all want to hear!!!
luv, kanga n Jen

That's the nice thing about CSN; it's probably the only place where we can share both good and bad news with confidence that it will be received with the understanding and empathy that only cancer survivors / caretakers can give.. Nanuk
