check up

Hi all: Just wanted to share with you that I just "passed" my three month check up and got a clean bill of health. I finished my chemo in late Jan. 2002 and my raditaion in late March 2002. I haven't been to my onclogist's office in three months and it was HARD going back seeing the people/patient in various stages of their illness/treatment. I could see by looking into their faces reading their emotions and remember being there. I don't know if it will ever get easier. A dear friend of mine told me that cancer was a four letter word and I believe that to be true.
For all of you that are undergoing treatment. Hang in there! There is a light at the end. You will be a survivor. This to will pass. Lean those around you that love and support you. Hang in there.
For those of you that are survivorss--way to go.

    Congratulations! Thanks for giving us your support. Personally, I find it wonderful when I see examples of people surviving this, especially since mine has come back.

    I think as time goes by it does get easier, but it is still hard to think of upcoming check-ups and trips to the Doctor's office without getting a little nervous!! I hope the future continues to be bright for you!
