lurker.  Litte back ground. My wife was diagnosed with Stage IIIA CRC.  Stupid lymphnodes.  Anyways, we went throught the whole chemo/rad then surgery then FolFox.  Well we had our two year CT scan to make sure nothing was going on.  I guess what.  Nothing is!!!!!!!  Still NED after two years.  I know we still got a long haul ahead of us, but like most we take the victories where we can get them.  So, I celebrated and had a Coke.  I gave them up years ago.... Tasted good too.  I still think about and pray for all on here.  You folks provide such comfort to those going through this and us caretakers.  Bless you all.

    It's funny how we still see

    It's funny how we still see junk food as a celebration.  I recently had a root beer!  So ridiculously delicious. Congrats on the NED.  We're in the same circumstance, stupid lymph nodes!  lol  Two years and counting.  Wooo hooo.

    Great, congratulations. Just stay on the wagon.  A coke habit, either kind, is very dangerous.Wink
