This was my Caring Bridge post today. Celebrate with me!

Well, Well, Well...here we are in December again. Last Dec I was writing about the horrors of chemo and radiation and facing all sorts of unknowns. Today I had a visit with Dr Mark, my oncologist. I was supposed to be scheduling a CT scan, etc for the next couple of weeks. But wait! Dr Mark said NO - you are FINISHED for this year. I do not have to have another scan until SEPT 2010! And I don't have to see Dr Mark until April. OMG - I thought this day would never get here. So...

I am NED (no evidence of disease)

There is ZERO chance of cancer coming back in the rectum because, well, I no longer have a rectum!

The chances of it showing up in the liver now are greatly reduced (almost to nothing)

My ostomy has given me my life back. Heck, today I was grocery shopping, running errands, etc. I forgot to even be tired! LOL!

He said if I want, I can have my port removed!

all in all, a good day.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! Vicki

You been through so much, I am sooooo happy to hear about this! NED! I'm really happy the colostomy has worked out to be a good thing, I believe it's a lifesaver for me as well, I hope you remain NED forever!

It's great to feel almost normal again and running errands and all, it gave you your life back, so good deal! Wishing you a wonderful holiday, and many more great scans in the future! You are an inspiration to me, gives me a lot of hope!

Hugsss!

Yes, it's a good feeling. It was weird being at the cancer center and not being sick! I still get tired, I still whine, and of course I still worry. But most of all, I give thanks to God for this wonderful day!

Many hugs, Vicki
