Well folks I can now say we are NED after our very long road since August!! Kreg is still recovering as we are 12wks post. He is still having problems with his stomach and the achiness all over. But, it's a small price to pay to beat this crap! 

For those of you starting out I hope you keep your faith and know that this is doable. There are many challenges along the way...but I still have to say it's worth going through to save one's life. 

And for those that have stuck by our side through this long journey of a bus ride....THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! I don't know what I would have done without you all. You made this ride a lot less bumpy!! You gave us so much courage and strength to get through it. I love you all very much and wish everyone a richfull, healthy life...because it is possible....I see so many survivors on here doing just that!

Amen to all of you Warriors....I'm looking forward to "paying it forward" by sticking on this forum and reaching out to others just as some of you have done for us. 

I have only one last thing to say "GOD BLESS US ALL AND I WANT TO CUREITALL!!!"

Phrannie......my first "Responder"! You were the first to respond to my very first, frightening post. You picked me up and informed me it wasn't as bad as I thought. That first night I kept playing over and over in my mind what you said.....he WOULD survive! Thank you for being there for us. It was so welcoming and warm of you to respond like you did. And look....you're my first "Responder" again here.....good sign! THANK YOU!Laughing

I know we started out around the same time and you had a setback....but, we have always thought of you along the way. I'm glad things are starting to move along more for you both. I will keep praying that it still does.

Thank you for also being there for us!

NED....is always a shout out that the beast doesn't rule.  Kreg is a strong warrior and you are right beside him swinging away !  Job well done !   Katie

Cris & Kreg,

 

Congratulations, well done.

 

Go out and have a big steak dinner, on me.  A little premature?  I mean go out and have the biggest smoothie, on me.  Or do like me and sit at home and count your blessings.

 

I am very, very happy for the two of you.

 

Best,

 

 Matt

John...

You know you're the BEST...You have been right by my side through the thick and thin. I don't know how I could ever repay you. You kept my chin up so many times. If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't have been the strong caregiver I was for him. I owe everything to you!! You've always been the best RESPONDER...night or day...THANK YOU!!

p.s....you know I won't quit bugging you..Tongue Out ....and I'm determined we will make it to FLA to go fishing with you Laughing

You are already paid up, you took care of your man, and now you guys will be stronger than you have ever imagined....

If you wanna hang around here from time to time and give back (as you already are and have been), that's the best repayment ever...

Cureitall,

And you did!  I was so excited to read about your "NED"! We are dancing in celebration! Great news. Hopefully those last side effects will wane quickly and let you two enjoy the new stage -- Healthy! and just intime for spring!

And thank you too, while you were in the midst and heat of the tx, you were there for those of us who followed in behind you... still able to not only get help, but offer your hand to us too. Thanks!

Hugs,

Kari
