If I said I was not totally relieved I would be lying!!!!!!
My ultrasounds and blood tests have come back very positively---that is to say--nothing--not a thing shows up on them!!!!!!!!!
I am so happy I could jump right across tha screen and give all yu guys a bear hug!!!!!!!
I am pleased to say that I have a doctor that is listening to me now."She" is now scheduling ultrasounds on a regular basis and bloods every 3 months.She is very happy with the surgeons/oncologists reports and is encouraged that the surgery/chemo has stopped the beast in its tracks.
She agrees with me that further colonoscopies should be done regularly--the first at 6 months and then 12 monthly rather than the previous doctors advice of every 2 years.
So guys--what can I say???Of course the beast will still be on my mind but I hope that these results may be of some encouragement to others here.
We both thank you all from the very bottom of our hearts----I know that I have said it before--but who cares--we REALLY mean it!!!!
luv n huggs to all--kanga n Jen

BTW--kanga ain't leavin his friends--am still comin here--still got lotsa luv to give!

Kanga and Jen,

This is the best news and I am sooooooo happy for you both. I know what a relief it is. I too am staying on this site with this wonderful group, even though I finished treatment and tests are coming back good. If we can offer any answers, encouragment and/or prayers to anyone going through this diagnosis and treatment we'll be here for sure.

Stay in touch and enjoy your "new" life!

YOU GO DUDE!!!!! I thought about you all day yesterday knowing you would soon be getting your results. What wonderful news to a very deserving couple (you and Jen, the ultimate caregiver). You have to stay with us, so you can teach us what it is like in survivalship!!!! You, Stacey, Spongebog, Emily, and so many of the other true survivors give so much to us newbies with your information, but mostly from your inspiration. I for one learn from your every posting.

Please spend some time savoring this moment and go for a long, fun ride on them cycles soon.

Hugs from the East Coast of the US to your family down under!!!! Congrats again and I will be toasting your success for the next few weeks!!

Hey guys---outstanding!!!!!I had to kick myself--23 replies!
I am truly moved!!!!--like, there is a tear in my eye and I swear that is gods truth!
I have tried, knowing full well that there are many here who have or are going thru this horrible thing, to be of some comfort/support in any way I can.All of you in some way has shown cancer sufferers and carers alike that there is a lot of love in this world and it is sad that a disease like this is needed to bring us all together---it really shouldn't be that way--but before being afflicted many of us "thought it would never happen to us.
Jen and I believe that well known quote--"do unto others"--and we live our lives in that way.
Thank you so much for your replies.
We wish you all so much health and happiness that life can give you and----
"for crying out loud--please survive--our hearts will be terribly saddenned if any of you lose faith!!!"
Luv and ((((((((ALL)))))))))---you are forever in our hearts.
kanga n Jen

kanga ain't leavin yah--this puta and yu guys are my lifeline!!!!!!
