I went to my Oncology appointment yesterday and received wonderful news. My CT Scan came back "great" It was NED!!! Also my CEA went from a 35 at the start of chemo in June to 3.8 as of yesterday!!!!! They said I am NOT cured, but I am in remission!!!

I don't want to celebrate too much because it could come back, but I have never been through this and have been scared since diagnosed in April of this year.

So excited to hear your wonderful news. 

I still think you should celebrate in some way. We all know that stats, but until it happens, which it may not, celebrate the NED. I bought myself a bracelet which I replaced my silicone Kickin' Cancer bracelet with. Just my way of celebrating. You'll know how to celebrate you. 

May you see many years of NED.

You never know how long he'll stick around (might as well assume forever, until proven otherwise), and he's a fun guy to pal around with for as long as it lasts (kind of like some guys I dated).

That is great news. I understand your aprhension but go out and celebrate a little. You deserve it. We all deserve to celebrate (Unfortunately not all of us) when we reach NED.
