Hi to my bestest friends!!!!!
I got some good news today from my docs. The first good news ever for me since I began my cancer journey. History: Stage IV with 2 mets to the liver and 1 to my lung. I did chemo for 8 months and it helped at first but stopped. Last Nov, I chose to stop chemo and started alternative treatments. Jan. 05, I had testing and everything was the same as it was before, but that was a good sign to me since I was holding the bastard cells at bay. Then today, I got my next results and the 2 tumors in my liver are "less significant", which means they are shrinking. I was estactic and actually made my onc blush by hugging his neck so hard. The rest of my radioligists writeup does not mention the tumors in my rectum area or my lung. I don't know what that all means but for them too not mention them means really good news to me.
I know my new regime will take time, since it taken me 50 years to make my body comfortable for those nasty cancer cells to make a home in and now it will take time to make their "home" miserable. Nuke the bastards is my new motto.
I am not cancer free by any stretch, but have gotten the first news of steps in the right direction ever!!!!! I now feel like I can be healthy again for the very first time.
Thank you God!!!!!!!
I did not do any of this on my own, I did it with the help of God and so many dear ones and many of them reside right on this board: Em, Bud, Kanga, Lisa Rose, SB, Andrea, Stacy, Kerry, Kay, Barb. Maura, Rejoyious, Judy, Sue, Steved, Amy and I know I am forgetting so many others that mean so much to me...Kris S. and Fitlisa come to mind.
I need to post this since y'all seem to want to know. Hugs, kisses, and hummingbirds forever!!!!!
Thanks to you all and yes I am celebrating tonight. Dancing in the ballroom is in order here!!!!!!
