Hello all you Rockin' Semi-Colons pals!!

August 6 is my four year anniversary!!!


I love those words. As much as I love NED.

I have a houseful right now and more coming this weekend so I just wanted to sneak in here really quickly and share this with you.

Tomorrow I will be off to the berry patch picking fresh organic blueberries and raspberries and then to my buddie's house for lunch to CELEBRATE!!!

I know that YOU all understand the importance of this day in our lives. Sometimes our families just don't "get it" and don't make a big deal about it. BUT WE DO!!!

Thank you all for being a part of my LIFE.




wow. Isn't that awesome??

love you all!

peace, emily who is so pumped to be alive today!!

Congratulations on your anniversary, Emily! I for one am glad that you have had so many years of NED, and tonight after I get out of the hospital and go to dinner with my father, I will drink a special toast to your four years. And wish you forty more years!

Emily, how awesome!!! I am a 6+ year survivor of stage 3 rectal cancer (diagnosed at 36). Like you I had young children at the time of my diagnosis. I am so thrilled to be alive and kicking, and disease free, 6 years later!! It struck me last night when I was out shopping for some new running shoes...I saw the Lance Armstrong Nike gear and bought some new shorts. When I got home I told my wife...if anyone deserves to run in Lance Armstrong's clothing line it's me...another survivor! Sometimes I forget I am a survivor. You are an inspiration to alot of people on this board. Your healthy living is a great example of reclaiming your life after battling this disease. GO EMILY!

Oh Honey!!!!!!

I have tried to tell you but you have no idea how important you are to all of us here, especially me. I specifically remember thinking you were a crazed woman for doing coffee enemas. Now, it it weren't for my colostomy bag, I would be doing them too!!!!!!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!

Now enjoy and celebrate. Don't eat too many berries!!! I'm with Lisa Rose, I can't wait to hug your neck and just giggle in Vegas!!!!!!

It is going to be so much fun!!!!!!!

Hugs, kisses and much love to you and I look forward to years and years of chit chats and long walks in the wild. You are so wonderful!!!!

Love you honey,

Lisa P.

Emily: Inspiring. Untiring. Perspiring on the perpetual rack of redemption.
The journey from coffee ice cream to coffee enemas is a long and arduous one and I may never make it to the end (pun intended) but ostomy or no, I am slowly cleaning up my act with the help of my naggy niece. Your example is a good goal to shoot for even if I miss the mark.

Congratulations on your aniversary! These fine people couldn't have said it better. I am still a little on the outside of the "group" and I can still see what an inspiration and wonderful soul you are.

Ah patricia,

Have you not been fully initiated into the Semi-Colons yet??

All you have to do is take the oath to obsess about your poop, make an attempt to understand Sponge Bob's humor, send zany photos to Aspaysia for her blog site, look up the web sites that nunuk posts, head to Las Vegas to meet our famous movie star Stacy, wear a thong like kanga, sit by Barb's pool drinking margaritas --no scratch that--drinking carrot juice.....you get the idea.

Just keep posting and hanging out and you'll feel "in" the group in no time!!

peace, emily who has been on the boards for many moons and i ain't leaving yet!!

Congratulations! I think about you all the time and how awsome you are to be so disciplined, something that I haven't been able to accomplish.
Enjoy your celebration!

peace, emily who is now going to make her morning carrot juice and toast ALL the semi-colons on these boards!! TO LIFE!!
