Pinch me.. I think I'm dreaming!!! I was floored when the onc said "well, according to scan results... you have NO cancer left in your body...anywhere!" WHAT?...WHAT? Shut-up! no.. he was serious. He said that 2 tiny tiny spots showed up in the lungs but did not light up and were read as dead tissue being dissolved by my body. WOW! I have screamed and danced ever since then. Dang near wore myself out.... but I can't stop! At first I really didn't believe it. I had to see scan and report and finally it started sinking in.

I know with the billions of cells that invaded my body that there is always that possibility of it coming back. We all know that. BUT.... I can honestly say I DO NOT HAVE CANCER TODAY!!! ... and if it only last 1 day.... that is one day I feel free from the beast!

Onc. said I have to be weaned from chemo. No quitting all at once. He cut a few things out of my cocktail.... one of them being the one that made my hair fall out.... yeah!!!..maybe I will get hair back soon. he also took 5FU push away and made treatments every 3 weeks instead of 2. It will stay like this for 6 weeks..then CEA levels to see if all still well...if so more will be discontinued until finally...NONE!

I just can't believe I went from that baseball size tumor in my colon that had burst thru the wall and attached to abdomin wall... to 4 liver mets.. one of which was very large and on a vessel... and finally 15 mets spread throughout my lungs and 3 were very large... to NONE!

Persistance... hope...faith... my family...you people (luv u all)... and most of all God. I got my miracle. I have been blessed. NEVER..NEVER..NEVER give up. I am here now and always for you. If I can ever do anything for my semi family.... please let me know

Hummmm... I am thinking it's vacation time..... YA THINK???? LOL

Peace... Jennie

Ohhh I am so happy for you. It has been a long road and journey for you and you have achieved what you set out to do and that is being NED. I can't blame you for yelling and dancing around and you will continue to do it day after day. Just a warning, if you decide to do the happy naked dance, make sure you pull the blinds :) Congratulations!!!!!

Well, that's a miracle story, Jennie

Much different from the night when you wondered if that would be your last July 4th - I remember that thread vividly! I'll never forget what we said...

From all of that to being clear...yes, you were blessed and I am so happy for you...you should go play the lottery now :)

Hi I'm Melissa new here but wanted to say I'm so happy for you! Also wanted to ask if you ever found out why you had those painful bowel movements ? I swear that post is what made me join! It is exactly what I had been experiencing and could have wrote that post myself. I was just wondering if you got an answer bc my dr didn't have one. Again congrats!

I did find out what was causing that intense pain during bowel movements...... hemroids... did I spell that right??? They are internal which explains why I did not feel or see any. Onc. gave me some suppositories (yea!) and they are working already. The swelling in the anal canal was causing obstruction and made bowel movements painful..... whew! man do I feel better!!! Any questions you can always PM me if you want.

ALL MY OTHER SEMI-COLONS......THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR WELL WISHES.... AND YES I HAVE DANCED AND DANCED... WITH AND WITHOUT CLOTHES...AND NO.... I DIDN'T CLOSE THE BLINDS...I WAS TRYING TO BE SLY BUT LIVE ON 11 ACRES WITH NO NEIGHBORS!... OH WELL...HUBBY LIKED IT..LOL

That is fantastic news! I love reading the NED entries. It gives me hope. I just had my last IV chemo Monday so the tears are flowing pretty easy and man does it sting. Kate's reply got me laughing. I hope some day to take a NED Caribbean cruise.

You have come a long way from the scared little puppy you started out as. I remember a post in July where you were doubting whether or not you would be around next July 4th and now the possibilities are endless. I could not be happier for you.
