this is great news and I am jealous. I wish I were jealous of every single woman on this board.

 By any chance can you tell us why you are so successful?

I personally have done nothing special. I had a fantastic onc/gyn surgeon, IP treatment, wonderful husband, and I guess God isn't finished with me yet.Smile

I am thankful for everyday and try to live it to the fullest.....that doesn't mean that I don't have scary fearful thoughts

every now and then...LOL

((HUGS)) Joan

P.S. I do try to eat a little chocolate everyday
