Thank you all for responding to my question about how to answer folks who ask if I am cancer free. It is good to know that my mixed feelings are common. I like the comparison with losing a child. Our first child was stillborn. While I consider myself to the the parent of 3, when folks ask about my family, or when we introduce oursleves, we introduce ourselves as a family of 4, not 5. If it comes up later we talk about our first child. I guess with cancer it can be the same way. As far as daily life and normal functioning, I do not have cancer, though in my mind and heart it will always be a part of who I am. Thank you all for your help, once again.

Blessings to you all, seof
