I wanted to share that I met with my oncologist today and God has been kind enough to allow me another clear CT scan. This is my 2 1/2 year scan and I thank God for the gift of every day.

Best Regards,

Good news is always welcome on this board, and I'm pleased for you to hear it! I hope to be able to report the same thing next week, when I have my 6 month post-op CT scan.

Enjoy the day and the clear scan.

Oh Paul! Congratulations!!!!! We are so happy for you. Actually, we are very, very happy!

You were one of the very first to write to us on this site and you have kept tabs right along. Don got the pathology report today :/ Not so hot - we are awaiting an appointment with the radiation oncologist - the tumor board recommends additional radiation as the report said that cancer was in the esophageal margin. The nurse wasn't real informative - but we see the chemo onc on Wednesday and then will see the radiation onc at some point. Of course, Don is still in the healing process so nothing will happen right away.

But! Knowing that you have done so well and you had follow-up chemo - gives us great hope. Tomorrow they are calling for rain - so maybe we will just go ahead and dance in the rain.

Love ya buddy and congratulations - you managed to put a smile on my face today and I would not have thought that was possible - so thank you!

Happy NED and many, many more!
Judy & Don

Yes I got some "not so good" news in my pathology report as well. Of course the last thing I wanted to consider was follow up chemo. But I did it; and it appears so far that the chemo did what it was supposed to do. Tell Don to concentrate on healing first. One day at a time.

You are both in my prayers daily, now I have something very specific to pray for.

Best Regards,

Congratulations Paul. Our God is a truly great one. I'm so happy for your good results. I've got a scan coming up in two weeks and I'm starting to feel what you called scanxiety already.

Take care

I don't come here often, still working and hanging in there. I haven't been for regular check ups but I feel good. My brother still dealing with issures but hopefully will be fixed soon.

Any way............

It made me smile and brought me great joy to see your post. I thank God for the love and mercy he has shown.

Enjoy the dance, and dance and dance and dance.

God bless

Good news is always welcome. I hope to be reporting good news as well in the future, but in my case, it's just take the chemo and hope for shrinkage.

I'm happy for ya, man.
