Hi friends,

After waiting a week and a half for results Jeff finally got his primary care doctor to give him a call back with the results.  ALL CLEAR!! :)  This is Jeff's two year scan, which from what we have been told is a pretty big milestone.  Next scan will be in six months, we get to take a breather for awhile.  We have some new things on the horizon for us as well.  We have been looking for a new home, as we will begin the foster to adopt process very soon.  We both look forward to new adventures in our lives.  Jeff continues to work on gaining weight and works out quite a bit, he feels pretty good most of the time.  We look forward to many more clear scans.

Hoping the best to all out there who are in treatment and in recovery,

Congratulations!!!!  I am sure your oncologist has told you the odds improve significantly after two years.

May there be many more clear scans!!!

Great news for you guys.  Two years is an important milestone.  My doctors told me that it was the turning point from short term success to long term success.  


I also wish you well with your fost/adopt journey.  I worked for years in foster care and adoption and saw so many folks have success building their families through that route.  It can get a bit bumpy at times, but if you've done well on the EC roller coaster, you're probably well suited to succeed on the fost/adopt ride.

Such fabulous news!!!    ----but a week and 1/2???  Nail biting.  Totally worth it for the results given.  Congrats and I am very happy and encouraged by your news and how exciting for your future plans.

Thanks everyone for the well wishes and congratulations.  This has been the longest two years of my life.  I of course will still always worry, but a certain amount of stress has been lifted as we move into year two.  I hope eveyone out there who is just starting treatment can find hope by reading our success story, that is the reason I post the good news.  I know when Jeff was first diagnosed I looked for any and all good news stories I could find about EC.  I am very excited to start a new chapter in our lives and use the life lessons we have learned from EC.


Hope and Peace to all,

NikiMo - I am So GLAD to see this good news!  I think of you and Jeff often.  I'm thrilled beyond belief that he's doing well and gaining weight.


And many many blessings on you both as you move into the foster to adopt route.  You will make remarkable parents, I know.  You know how precious life is and that will make a little one in your home all the more special.


All my love and BIG {hugs} to you both!

Your post brought tears to my eyes.  I pray that we will be blessed and are able to build our family very soon.  I hope that we can make a little person as happy as they would make us.


I hope you and your children are doing well, my thougths are always with you!!

Hello Niki,

Congratulations on Jeff's clean scans.  I just had my scans last night and if clear I will have also made it two years N.E.D..

I hope you find the home of your dreams and get the new addition to your family.


Take care,
