I know its been a while since I have posted, I do lurk from time to time. I had my scans done a week ago last friday, and I got the ALL CLEAR once again. Thank you GOD! In November it will be 4 years in remission. History: DX in May 2007 Stage 3, had surgery, did chemo and rads, all clear in June 2008, came back in Oct same year, stage 4, as it had moved to my lung, had surgery again, did chemo, finished in June 2009, and have had clear scans ever since. I was actually struggling with making this post, but my partner said that I should share the great news, to share some hope, so that is what I am doing. I do struggle with what one would probably call survivors guilt, but I am learning that guilt is a wasted emotion. Sometimes I wonder why me? Why not let Lisa live, she had 3 kids under 18, or Donna, or so many of the ones that have passed from this beast, but I guess my answer is its not up to me. I am so very thankful for everyday....I am so very thankful for all those here on the board, so terrific people here...This board helped save my life :)
CP10 is around the corner, I strongly encourage anyone who is able to come. I know the rate is 149, but if you happen to be eligible for government/military/senor rates, you might be able to get it a bit cheaper, as I did, got my room for 100 a night. It is so much fun, to be around others that know what you are going through or went through, to be able to talk about your situation without having to explain every little detail, because we all know the ins and outs of different treatments, surgeries and potty problems. There is so much laughter, some crying, lots of good eats, sight seeing, and more laughter.
Well thanks for listening, you are all in my prayers everyday....
