Are you ready for Good News? Validation that your wishes, prayers, meditations,etc are indeed powerful? NO CHEMO! Oncologist said they removed the cancerous lymphnode, I have been responding so well to my meds otherwise~ that I stay on the Tamoxifen for another 3 months!!!!
I don't even know where to begin~ I am so very thankful!!

Hugs,
Chen♥

I am so glad that you are not having to do chemo and I am please that a shell of strength went with you today. I am very teary eyed at this news. I know that your path can have many twists and turns and that much is still unknown. And the last few months have been filled with news and events that have been so disheartening. I am so, so happy to hear about good reports and I hope that this is the beginning of a new, better trend for all our sisters. Hoping that you mark the beginning of better times, I am just so darn happy. If I could do a back flip I would. Big hugs right back to you and Reggie.

I am so glad you received good news from the oncologist. There truly is "strength in numbers" ... and who or what would want to mess with all of us Kindred Spirits? Sometimes we just don't know how much strength and power we really have. (And ... I'm sure there was a lot of help from Moopy and the other wonderful angels watching over all of us.)

love,
Teena

Dear Claudia,

I bet you feel as if you have been reborn. Absolutely FANTASTIC NEWS.

To everyone, the important thing is to never ignore our required visits and tests. The growth was removed "young" because Claudia was diligent with her follow ups and did not allow fear to stop her from seeking medical attention. And of course, the prayers from everyone were very powerful.

I know this weekend is going to be a super weekend for everyone. Celebrate!!!!!

Lots and Lots and Lots of Hugs and Love,
Janelle

Chen -
I can't begin to tell you how happy I am for you and that the big guns aren't needed. Janelle's comment about the impact of not allowing fear stop you from seeking medical attention is really powerful. You have to have had many moments of absolute fear and dread yet you did what you had to do. Congratulations. Hope you celebrate big time.

Chen,

I expected your doctor to keep you on Tamoxifen. It is good to stay on hormonal therapies as long as possible.

Your lymph node was just one of those "bumps" in the road. Not very pleasant to have, but doable.

Now go on an enjoy life once again!
