Imagine my surpise yesterday when I went to my dr appointment before chemo and my doc declared me NED!!!

Today is one year anniversary of my chemo treatments every two weeks and I am flabbergasted and grateful beyond words. I have earned (with blood sweat and tears) a two month break and we will go with the checks and scans and take it from there. What an amazing development and the timing is incredible. My daughter gets married in two weeks and I will feel two weeks better for the day ! They even sent me home with no treatment to my shock and surprise. I didn’t run out if there but did dance my way out lol(in my head)  the truth is I never cried so hard in my life as when I digested the words.... that I had shown a remarkable response to treatment and there was no evidence of disease At this time  

My thanks to this group for all I have read and all I have learned through your posts  good bad and ugly 

I also thank the god(s) and doctors, nurses, my children , my sisters and others that helped me to this point. 

It may may end up as only two months break but I feel like partying like it’s 1999!!!

Hahahahaha hakf kidding 

big hugs to all in this fight

Bridget
