Thank you to all who offered encouragement and prayers while I was awaiting test results. I have no evidence of spread to bones or organs, and the tumor discovered in the lymph node is shrinking after being on Armidex less than a month. Doctor expects it will continue to shrink and may then have radiation to try to eliminate it. I am feeling very hopeful.

    It's great to hear good news! Even when it's not our good news, it makes us feel good inside to hear that others are getting some breaks in life. I think it gives us all hope. Thanks for passing on your joy.

    Betty, so glad to hear that your scans look clear. My bone mets are being treated with taxol every three weeks along with a bone strengthening agent every third week. I did not get in the clinical trial, but still have hope. I don't know how many treatments I'll have. Guess it will depend on what bone scans show every three months. Good luck!
