Alisa Posted May 6, 2008 Share Posted May 6, 2008 Hello all! I just got my latest chest scan reports back and I am still NED (8 years)! I am so blessed and so grateful. I still can't believe it. It was the first time I had a CT without contrast. I've had "very small ground glass opacities" that have remained unchanged since 2003. All doctors assume it's scar tissue from my surgery. The report said they still remain unchanged and after all this time, the drs. said if it was anything, they would have changed. I still wish they wouldn't show up at all though. But I won't look for trouble .... I was diagnosed in 2000, when my twins were in 4th grade and I didn't know if I would make their elementary school graduation. Well, I'm still here, and they graduate high school next month! Yep, they are the babies in my avatar. I will update the picture with one from their HS graduation next month. My next goal - to be at their College Graduation. Both twins accepted at Stony Brook University in New York. I am so proud of them. They will be in the dorms, but are close enough to come home on weekends (2 hour Long Island Railroad into NYC). They told their college advisor (who told me without them knowing) that they wanted to stay in NY in case my cancer came back and I needed them. Of course when I heard that, I cried in the advisor's office like a baby. But I am happy with their decision. It's a good college and I am glad they are close to come home on weekends when they want. Well, I wanted to share my good news with you all. I'm ok until my next scan in January. I'm copying this to my other boards (ACOR and the AOL board), so I'll see some of you there. Love, Alisa Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
