Monday evenng my onc called me. I live 4.5 hours away from Stanford and my 52nd birthday was last week. He said, "Here's a birthday present to you, good scan and CEA under 1. You don't need to drive up early tomorrow." It was great news but I almost had a heart attack when I saw his number on my cell.
For those new or down...sometimes good things can happen. I am under no illusions after the last 4 years but this good scan gets me to the 5 year mark sincethe stage 4 dx. I so remember those first days and so little time seemed possible but my kids have grown from 11 to 16 and 9 to 14 and we have shared lots of love.
Thanks all and all my prayers your way...
People have asked and it is no magic bullet but I do the following:
I have seen too many people over these 5 years who were mentally stronger than me, ate better and i'm sure had a stronger faith pass away and I still do not understand the unfairness of it.
I do know that survivor stories helped me. I hope it helps someone out there.
