So I think I must be dreaming.
Just got home from Stanford, seeing my surgeons.
Colon cancer removed, had a couple of polyps that popped up in the removed area since
the colonoscopy from a couple of months ago, so the Dr. is thinking predisposed, so
colonoscopy year from now.
Ureter Cancer removed.
Liver tumors two removed and the area around the Liver shows nice, sweet and clean of cancer.
Lymph nodes 13 in all were taken and NONE show cancer. They say I am Cancer Free at the moment.
Can this be real? I'm in shock. Happy shock, but still in shock.

Yes, I remember a particular post from my old friend, Dizz - you know which one it was that you had written:)

And like Buzz, I remember a different Winter from that time....who would have thought that this chapter could have been written with such a happy ending.

Actually, it's just so unbelievable when you walk back down the road and think about it all....just really, really happy for you!

Just goes to show you that one never knows how things will all turn out...you just got through a major surger(ies) and it could not have turned out any better for you.

May you go forth and spread joy now with your good fortune...

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for this post. I wasn't going to log on today because it's my 29th wedding anniversary and I just wanted to forget about cancer. But reading your post is the best anniversary present I could ever receive. Your good news is our good news. It gives all of us stage IV patients hope that there can be a future after such devastating news.

Thank you Winter Marie and may your 2011 only be filled with health and happiness.

WOO HOO!!!!!!!
