Sam'swifeShirley Posted June 22, 2003 Share Posted June 22, 2003 What a beautiful and sad day this has been for me. Today I joined the Methodist Church that my wife and I have been attending for the last year and a half. We started to go there on the urging my best friend and associate, Dr. Sams. I met the pastor when he came to see me in the hospital when I had lung surgery in November of '01, when we were still trying to figure out what was wrong with me. He is such a wonderful man and greatly loved by the church. Today was his last day with us as he has been called by the church to move to a different church. There were many tears today, including his. I have felt better today, physically, than in months. I've been working, walking, listening to bluegrass (on spinner internet radio), practicing my banjo. Life looks so good overall. I am 13 months post diagnosis with LS-SCLC. I think I also have Stage IIIb NSCLC. I need to clarify this with my oncologist. I should qualify for that based on my large cell tumor in the supraclavicular node which I had removed Friday, even though I don't really have a primary NSCLC tumor that we can find. Wednesday, I start carbo/taxotere. I guess I don't have any active tumor at the moment. I don't think I will again. That's my plan. Life looks pretty good. I just don't know which board to post on now. P.S. I haven't been posting much lately as I try to sort out my current situation. I've read most of the posts. To all of you with good news, know that I celebrate with you and for those with bad news, know that I feel for you and I pray for us all. sam Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
