that you are going thru all this. You are one strong person, that's for sure. I wish I had some magic that could foretell the future, but alas, I do not. All any of us can do is fight this dreaded monster and never give up. You sound as if you have been doing one heck of a job! I know it is hard sometimes to keep a positive attitude and sometimes you just need to take a breather. But know you are not alone. CSN also has a chat room if you feel like visiting there. Usually someone there to answer any questions or just to listen. I hope you will continue to get good news from the Doc. I am sending positive thoughts your way. Stay strong and God bless. Cheryl

None of us know what is going to happen next, whether we are a cancer survivor or not we never know. That's why it's important for everyone to enjoy each day and find all the good in each day and each person. Don't dwell on the sad/bad things, instead surround yourself with the good things.

Keep fighting, you sound like you are a very strong person, never give up!!
