Hi Gavin!! Thank you for the Thanksgiving wishes. I am thinking about a trip over to Scotland for next year or the year after. Can I look you up?
I read about Kris’ death and I was so sorry to hear about it. She was a bright light on this site and her spirit shown in all of her posts and all of the support she showed others. May she rest in peace.
I will private message you Marion with her address.
Congratulations Genevieve. What a stupendous outcome. 5 Years is truly something to celebrate.
That’s great news Kris!! So glad to hear it.
Stopped by today and sorry to see all that you are going through. Hang in there! I will keep you in my thoughts Kris.
Congratulations on your 5 year anniversary! It is certainly something to celebrate and enjoy!
Thanx Lainy! Can i add that I turn 60 on Saturday. Hard to believe cause I feel a lot younger than that for sure, but that is what the calendar reads. I have decided I don’t believe in calendars
Just putting up my annual survival post: 6 years this month!! I am a lucky girl and my greatest wish is that everyone touched by this disease be as lucky.
6 years for CC
16 years for thyroid
21 years for breast cancerOctober 18, 2015 at 11:39 am in reply to: Can’t find previous line of topic, so I thought I’d start a new one #89533
Just saw this and along with everyone, I am so sad to hear about Duke’s death. What an eloquent man and what a great contributor to this site both in time and in words. We have too many of these moments when people we’ve come to cherish are gone…
hip hip hooray! Congrats on such a great milestone Lainy! you know I wouldn’t have had the good spirits and attitude toward my surgery and chemo and healing if I didn’t have you and this board. I am forever grateful to everyone here.
Hugs to all.
Congrats Lisa! 5 years is indeed a wonderful milestone and you have been through so much that it must feel extra specially good.
So happy for you!
So glad when i stopped by I could read you wonderful news. I have had 3 cancers and 5 years seems to be the tipping point, however, with CC it seems that they like to leave it in my hands. I am 6 years out in December and the doc gave me the choice of whether to come back in 6 months, 1 year, or never again., since there had never been a sign of cancer since my surgery. Kind of daunting and I think I’ll choose the 6 months interval for at least one more time.
I have always gotten MRI with and without contrast. The CT requires a larger IV and you have to drink that chalky stuff which sets my intestines back for about 6 weeks. The doc decided that we would do MRI’s from about the first year and I think they are clearer images and easier to do for me. I believe as long as they are comparing Mri to MRI or CT to CT you will see a change should one occur.
Hope you had a great celebration for your milestone!!
Just saw the same thing and stopped by here to post it but you beat me to it. Sure sounds like CC to me. Sad.
