I'll start :-)
Nick, age 48, diagnosed T3N1M0 on May 19, 2011. 28 rads & 2 weeks inpatient Cisplatin/5FU. THE 09/08/2011, Clean Path 09/13/2011.
CT on 12/13/2011
Met with surgeon in January - surgeon says "new node in upper right lung noted in CT. Not to worry, you're doing great. You are my poster boy."
Met with Oncology in January - he says "hmmm, new node? Too small to biopsy. CT again in March."
Fast forward to today - met with Oncology to review 03/15 CT scan. Doc walks in the room and says the node is gone. NOT visible on the scan. Nick is NED!!!! Next appointment is 3 months, lab work and doc meeting only.
Thank you, Lord! I am SO GRATEFUL!!
Niki & Jeff - I know you're looking at the same fears I had just hours ago. Please know I'm thinking of and praying for you both.
Where is the rest of our "Class"? It would be wonderful if you could update us on your progress. With much love and respect for all of you! YOU and prayer pulled Nick & I through this. and THANK YOU for that! Big hugs to everyone.
Credit for the CAPS to ERIC who we lost today. We will miss you!
