Even though the testing never really ends for Head & Neck cancer it is good for the soul to celebrate small milestones every once in awhile. We have all been through so much with this nasty disease. If not for this site, good doctors, and medicine available for our comfort, who knows where we'd be.
Looking at the calendar today I realized it had been a year since my last radiation treatment. I wasn't quite sure of the actual date so I logged on here and read my profile blog for the date. According to me, my last treatment was on April 3rd, 2012. Yea! Yea! To anyone else who never suffered from this disease it may not sound like a big deal. But to us, we know that any milestone that is positive is worth celebrating. So tonight my wife and I will treat ourselves to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. I believe we both suffered enough.
Thank you everyone for your support during my darkest days. When you can't swallow or talk, you can still log on here and read all the posts. You all kept me thinking positive which also kept me off of the pity pot.
One milestone down, many more to follow.
