Congratulations! Five years is certainly an impressive benchmark for you. I hope that all is going well.

I had surgery in October of '05, half of tongue replaced with nerves, muscle, tissue, from left arm, along with a radical neck dissection. All of this followed by radiation and chemo, of course. On January 31 of this year I had a lobectomy of lowest lobe in right lung, as a node was detected there which proved to be malignant. So far, since then, all appears to be well.

Again, congratulations!

Take care,

Joe

Five years, hope I can breath easier at that time! They two years is another milestone of sorts but five seams to be everything.
