Thank you all for your prayers! I got my results from my bloodwork and scan at MD Anderson - ALL CLEAR!!! I feel like I can take on the world right now! My liver even grew back great...or as the doctor said, I have a 'very attractive liver'! And they said by looking at my bloodwork you couldn't really tell I went through a year of hell.

So here is my advice to all the Stage IV's....DO NOT GIVE UP AND FIGHT LIKE HELL!!! I had stage IV because it metastisized to the liver. I know I am not completely in the clear and will have to be watched very closely for many years, but to be told I am NED, go enjoy your life is an amazing feeling.

Thank you all again!!!

You have given me hope as well, thanks for the post, so glad to hear you are NED, I also am Stage 4 because it metastasized to my liver, and feel like there is no hope for diseased livers, and the most they can do it just chemo on it, I hope to be operable one day, my doctor said the tumors have vastly shrunken, so that is good, encouraging news for me, and hope they keep on shrinking!

Get out and party girl!! the naked dance is waiting for you :) Congratulations, and hope you stay NED for many years to come~

Thanks for all of your support. I can't stop smiling today. And Nana b - I am so happy for you too!
I know being stage 4 I will have to be watched closely but to be done with chemo and being told I was NED is like winning the lottery. And for every stage diagnosed with this beast - JUST DON'T GIVE UP OR GIVE INTO IT!!!
There were a few times (right after surgeries or on a bad chemo day) I asked my my husband what is the point of continueing like this....so everyone has their bad days. But I keep visualizing myself healthy and happy. And I keep telling myself I am healthy and cancer free. I figure if you can worry yourself sick, then you can will yourself healthy!!
Plus my 5 year old swears she wants twins....I gotta be around to help her!

Now I can start juicing and start an exercise program and really getting into shape. Everytime I started before the chemo round would knock me back down.

Thanks again for all your support!
