ALL CLEAR........NED. YES!!! ONC told me that I am clear and even better then before...any little thing that may have been lit up and questionable, is even gone! Nothing, nada! Next scan in 6 months. My blood work is good!

On another note, I was put out on a Leave of Absence. ONC does not want me to stress over my job; he is highly concerned that my cancer will reoccur over this stress. I have an appointment with a neurologist regarding my motor skills; I don't think my hands are keeping up with my brain! And I'm getting the hernia checked out for possible surgery. I also have an appointment with an employment attorney tomorrow! My ONC does not think my employer is being very humane or ethical when it comes to my health!


I asked my ONC about my diet and he said, keep doing it and exercise, we just need to take care of the stress!

    Good Job
    Leave of absence sounds good. If it is a paid absence that is even better, if not, that is a bummer. Now don't go leaving the board just because you are NED, lots of us still need your good vibes and influence and information. We have some newbies on board and your encouragement goes a long way. Good Job - Tina

    Raquel,

    That is great news! Hope all goes well with other stuff. I think that's good that you're going on leave from work. Stress is not good!

    Take care-
