I have not been active on these boards in a while.  While I have been fine, I have been dealing with both of my brothers having different forms of cancer.  Younger brother who lives alone had throat cancer, and fortunately, he is doing well after surgery.  Older brother is still dealing with a rare lymphoma and tumors in his eyelids.  He is still working through treatment options and is dealing with it.  Who would have guessed three brothers would go 3/3 with totally different cancers.  We are the cancer lottery winnners! 

Anyway, I go for my three year follow up to MSKCC tomorrow with Dr. Russo.  I always peek at my scans before I go in, and I am happy to say they indicated NED!!  Good news is always welcome.  Looking forward to my now annual ferry trip to NYC.

Life is good.

    Glad you're doing well, and have good wishes I'm sending to your bros.

    Of course a Good Attitude helps.  Who in their right mind would want a bad attitude, as it benefits no one?

    Smooth Sailing,
