While at my sons baseball game I got the call! I'm Phrannies sister.....Billie "NED~ina ", so nice to meet you all!

Funny thing is that my oncologist is actually out of town and so he hasn't read the report yet. The nurse said it was driving her crazy to not call me so she broke down and did it without his ok. She said the rule around there is that they can't call patients with results unless the dr ok's it. However, if a patient called them they can give good results only.
I'm so happy she called me! I didn't want to go the whole weekend without knowing.

Thank to everyone for all of your prayers and support, I appreciate you all so much!

I was really starting to worry. Lots of NEDS in the house!

It's so encouraging as we are just starting out!

I love being your sister!!  NEDette and NEDina....the twins! LOL....

I would have been twisting my hankie if I thought I was going to have to wait the whole weekend.....I'm SO glad you called, and glad that nurse was up to twisting the rules a little. 

Isn't breathing again fun? Laughing

Sister, very fun! Funny Rachel sent me a nice message yesterday and she referred to you and I as "the little monkeys" so I guess we are the " monkey twins!

So good to hear you finally got your good news. I too was worried you were going to have to wait all week-end to hear. I had mine on a Friday and figured I wouldn't hear until Monday but late Friday afternoon my doctors office called !!! Now you can really have a good Friday and a Happy Easter !

OUTSTANDING! I'm so glad to hear that you're part of NED's family!  congratulations, time for champange!!!!!

Why is it that doctors come up with the bad news almost immediately but they think nothing of delaying good news?  It may be that no news is presumed to be good news in their world, but for those of us fighting, we need to know as soon as possible.

So nice the nurse knew what we go thru waiting for results and elected to take you out of the mystery sooner than later.

Always like good news. (As if doctors always have the right words to deliver the news. However, mixed messages can always be a cause for concern.) Keep us updated on the steps to your recovery Rick.

Wow, such a relief... Great news!! I hope this standard of NEDs and NEDettes or NEDinas just keep going on Cool.

I'm very happy for you. It's so wonderful when a doctor or a nurse calls you to tell you good news. Usually they don't call at all, you just wait for your results via post. And if you try to call there's no one there or you can't reach them.

Congratulations, Billie, go now and enjoy!!

I.am soooooooooo happy for you, and soooooooooo sorry it took me so long. I was away and couldn't connect to wifi and then since I've been home trouble getting site or I would have been glad to celebrate your Easter/Passover gift(don't know which if either you celebrate). But my Easter prayers were answered for you, got to check in on the others. Thought of you and your NED hugging self all weekend.

God bless
Love ya,
