    Immediately Brooks, as of today I belong to Vanderbilt solely...
    I canceled both of my appointments with my Onc here today and my port I am going to call tomorrow for the exorcism (LOL) to be done asap.........
    I started blood draws (CEA) Monday to get baseline 0-3 hopefully....and then get checked out every 3 months as before with CT at 6 months then CT each year for a few years ...Blood draws every 3 months for a couple of years then go to 6 month intervals..All of this now being done at Vandy...2 1/2 hrs away...not to bad, a nice day trip...If you re occur according to her the 5 year mark begins again...Which doesn't matter to me 5-10-15, I will still look over my shoulder but I WILL live large.........Buzz

    Hi Buzz,although my hubby is
    Hi Buzz,although my hubby is NED now,me,as a wife,still worries about him a lot and a kind of living in a shadow (mainly because I worry about the reoccurence).Today,your story lifted me up.I think from now on I should enjoy my life more than worrying.Thank you,my buddy,you are a super wise man!Wish you the best.
