Kasey Posted January 4, 2010 Share Posted January 4, 2010 5 years ago today I was in the operating room at the National Institutes of Health undergoing an 8-1/2 hour life-saving surgery. I was dx'd in Sept. '04 and given no hope of surviving beyond the spring of '05. I actually count my survival from that Sept., but my very favorite surgeon said HE counts from his surgery. So I get to celebrate twice! I already did back in the fall, but today I will celebrate big time! So..........here's hope to all you newbies and thanks to all who've been with me anywhere along the way as I traveled this road. Fred and I have encountered a few bumps in the road since Thanksgiging which is a story for another time. But today I want to shout out a thanks to Katie for this site, to DonnaG for responding to me, and mhutch for giving me the info to get me to where I could find hope and help. You guys are all awesome and my true heroes! Thank you. Kasey - 5 year survivor - Stage IIIB 'inoperable' (yea, right!) lung cancer Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
