That was me EXHALING.

I heard back and my PET scan came back clear.

Now a new chapter opens in my life. Cancer made
me take a hard look at my life and the people in it.
I want to use this experience as a catalyst to live
a life that makes me feel whole. Now that I have
my priorities straight, something tells me I will
know just what to do.

Health, Peace, Love, Light & Hope to you as this new journey begins!

Another exhale here. It's hard to see the positive in cancer, but with a lot of courage and heart I believe you've found it. With admiration......xoxoxo Lynn

I just gave a deep sigh of relief that your Pet was good. And good to see that you are going to use this experience to move forward in a positive fashion. You are such a supportive person and can be a great influence on all you meet. Again, so happy the scan was good.

So happy to hear this Ayse, isn't it amazing how such a serious illness can cause us to re-evaluate our life style and those we spend our time with. Wishing you all the best!

And, if you remain sensitive to the world around you, in a good way, you can see the beautiful small things as well as the large ones....this morning, for instance, I am listening to birdsong out in my garden...it takes sitting still and listening, but I learned that from the tussles with the beast!!!!

BIG hugs, Kathi

Congrats! Isn't it amazing how the small stuff stays small and the big stuff doesn't seem so big after all we've been through.

for you, Ayse! Having gone thru the waiting game like you, it sucks every morsel out your being. Having a reprieve from the anxiety riddle mindset, is a blessed and affirmed change.

Strength and Courage,

Vicki Sam

What a great way to begin a period of renewal. For me, cancer has been a long process of learning to live with challenges, learning patience, and learning to care for myself. It hasn't always been fun, but I've grown up, that's for sure. I can honestly say I'm a more peaceful, accepting person now. Part of it is just getting older, but some of it is the aftermath of a cancer diganosis. Anyway, I'm sure you will find your way to living the life that makes you whole. Good luck!

It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
But now I need a little give and take
The New York Times, The Daily News

It comes down to reality
And it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide
Don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside
I don't have any reasons
I've left them all behind
I'm in a New York state of mind

I'm just taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River Line
'Cause I'm in a New York state of mind ......

I thought this Billy Joel lyric might give you a gentle nudge in the right direction, sweet Ayse! So, so happy for your good news; it is so obvious that your head and heart are full of goodness and new-found light~ follow your light to where you can truly shine.

exhaling and breathing better myself after reading this wonderful news!

I know you were very anxious and feeling tense, but, look at the results! You are just fine now!

NED is swinging you around the dance floor and will continue forever! I really believe that Ayse!

Going thru all that we do, with surgery's, tests and just the diagnosis of breast cancer, makes all of us question and rethink our lives. It has to.

But that, to me, is a good thing. It shows us what is important and what isn't. It shows us what direction we want to go. It shows us what friends, co workers and even family members supported us and were by our sides during this horrific period of our lives.

So Ayse....you take control of your life and do what YOU want to do! I know it will be something great!

Now go out and celebrate this wonderful news and live your life to the fullest!!!!

Sue :)
