    Hi SandiaBuddy

    Well I eat Organic based on the dirty dozen list, maintain a mediteranian-based diet, cook almost all my own food (so I know the quality).

    WHen I was first Dx'ed with Stage 3B signet cell colon cancer I heard no words after you have cancer.  I decided my glass is always 1/2 full so I fought (colon surgery for ascending colon, then 6 months of FU and Oxi). That was very powerful stuff.  I remember the horrible feeling of losing all my strength during infusion.

    I decided early on that I would fight, fight, fight. I am very type-A 

    Now I keep myself active, back to work full time and can think about/plan for the future.

    Part of getting through is really keeping a positive attitude - now I know how hard that is, but if you are having a good day - enjoy it.  If you are upset - give yourself 5 minutes to cry and then be done with that.

    All my best - keep all of us updated on your progress.

    You can PM me if you like.

    That's wonderful, congrats! I have kept bumping all my appointments as they never seem convenient, for so long, I'm now doing tests 5 months after anniversaries. As a marble does, keep rolling down that path................................................................Dave
