Hi to all,
It's been 2 years since I was told the dreaded news. "I have bad news, you have a mass." Life will never be the same. But I am a fighter and a survivor, as you all are too.
I have just returned from a much needed vacation, a cruise. We had a wonderful time. I also returned to work this week from my latest surgery, a permanent colostomy. I feel great. I haven't felt this good in a long time. I never thought I would say that.

I think of you all often and continue to pray for everyone on this site.

For the newcomers, it does get better. I never thought it would, but sometimes I even forget that I had cancer. Right now NED and I hope that continues.

Hi Maureen,
I find the anniversary of my diagnosis very "bitter sweet" -- but I'm so glad you are NED and had a much-deserved vacation - and that you are feeling good and so positive. Congratulations.

Hi Maureen,

I'm a day late and still drinking the green tea! It's so good to hear you sounding so well. My two year diagnosis will be in September, so you are a wee bit ahead of me. I'm glad your well-deserved cruise was wonderful, and I'm glad you are able and well enought to go back to work.

Thanks for sharing your story.
