1 year gratitude

One year ago I was diagnosed at Stage III with six out of 10 lymph nodes. I just got my most recent c-t scan results and once again, I'm NED. Ever since surgery I've been clean. My doc is feeling so pleased that he recommended going six months before my next c-t scan, though I opted for five to get it over with before the holidays. I think his optimism meant even more to me than my clear scan.

I just want to thank everyone on this site for--well, for everthing: wisdom, encouragement, bad jokes, good jokes, nutrition advice, pro-Lance propaganda, invitations to Las Vegas, and all the rest of the semi-and-no-colon palooza. I'm prepping for a colonoscopy tonight (the party just keeps on rolling along, doesn't it?) and I know, you've all been here, too.

There is so much tragedy on this site--Nettie and Judy are very much on my mind right now--but also so much hope. And a great bunch of people with whom to share it all. Thanks for being out there.
