Hi Marilee,

How Wonderful! I can imagine your relief to hear your doctor say those words. I’ve been so very lucky to be with my husband and hear his good news about the course of his cancer. We really appreciate you sharing the good news on Grace. It’s important for others in the process of fighting cancer to know there are excellent outcomes to life threatening problems.

I wonder how you are feeling otherwise. The last time you posted you still had surgery pain and neuropathy I assume from carbo or cisplatin. I hope that has subsided. However if not I bet with the good scan dulls the pain a bit.

Here’s to living life and to another good scan in 4 months and a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Congratulations,
Janine
