I am sorry I am not around as much. I still read many posts and just don't respond as I should. To any new members, I am stage 4 ( 4 lung resections, 1 liver rresection, colon, 10 months chemo, pulmonary embolism) and I am still here. The randomness and unfairness of this disease is the part that is so hard. I did get CT scan done Thursday at Stanford and it is all good with CEA below 1. No new spots. This makes it the first time since dx ( 8/06 ) that I have gone 1 year since a surgery or two. I still ski and surf, far behind my kids now.
Tonight I celebrate even though I have a cold, just drank a cold beer, smiled with the kids and wife and thought of many of you. I am still coaching and teaching and I do not have any good reason why things are going well. I do know that the long survivors on here lifted me up so thank to the survivors, thanks to their support team and safe travels to the warriors who have gone before.
Still active in the impact zone.
