hello to all

on february 24, 2014 i received the best birthday gift..my dad's 2 year petscan was all good with even an improvment in the inflamation in his esophagus! 

we ended chemo n rad in 10-11..we have had a petscan in 2012 and this one would have been 2013 (we were 2 months behind) i am so happy to get to the two year mark as i understand this is very good (has anyone else heard this)..

dad is doing well he is eating most things with the exception of some meats we cant gain weight but drs say if this is your worst complaint we r ok! he has to chew chew chew when eating..coughs up food thru his nose on occasion and still has phlegm nown again.but its all good!

hang in there to all!

Yes, the one year mark is a milestone, the two year is another for sure.... I'm fast approaching the five year mark.

Best,

John

michelle,

Yes, an all’s good PET scan and the 2 year mark are both very good signs.

I also belong to the chew, chew, chew club and can shoot a carrot out my nose.

Michelle, happy birthday and what a wonderful gift!  so glad your dad is doing so well.  yes, 2 years says a lot!  2/28/14 is my 2 year mark and i am looking very forward to it.  at 2 years the recurrence rate GOES DOWN, DOWN, DOWN!  good for us!  like your dad, i have to chew, chew, chew, chew, chew and then chew some more but i can eat anything.  i have also had my food come thru my nose instead of going to the stomach.  not sure why that happens, when it does, i just stop eating and try again later.  it does't happen that often.  i have a lot of phlegm everyday, i'm learning to just deal with it.  i use a suction machine for mine at least every hour, all day long and some thru the night.  overall tho, life is good.  tell your dad congrats on the 2 year mark!!  that is a great ahcievement!!

God bless you and family,

dj
