Good News!!


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I've just completed my 6 months scans--CT scan of chest and MRI whole body bone scan-- ALL CLEAR!!! After doing the PCI, I lost my hair, of course, and was totally kicked in the rear as far as energy goes.. but I am definitely on the upswing now! I am actually getting nights where I sleep for more than 5 hrs!!!!

You guys have been great! Thank you so much for being here for me. I know you can also beat this monster! Please just believe!

What a coincidence. I was just thinking about you yesterday and wondering how you were doing since I hadn't seen a post for awhile.

Well it looks like you are doing GREAT.

Marilyn - that's awesome - your diagnoses and treatment looks just like my husband Dave's (David C - check out his profile) and seeing how well you are doing makes it all the more encouraging for us!

That PCI kicked his butt big time, too, especially with energy - worse than the chemo.

by the way, he's got about a 1/4 inch of hair now, and his PCI was during the month of September - to give you an idea of how long it takes your hair to recover.

Keep in touch - you're doing great!

Thank you everyone for the replies and good wishes. We did go out to our favorite Chinese Resturant. And I tell you it felt fantastic to see something other than a Dr. or lab office!!

I hope to hear some good news (no matter how minor you think it is) soon; I'll be praying for all of you!

Hi Wenna,

Indeed,” sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof” but you had to put up with a lot of evil days to get so far in beating the “beast”. Congratulations on your wonderfully empty scans. I think we should all squeeze in every moment of good news and celebration we can, to make up for the bad times. Now that I can eat, I pamper myself with the best stuff I can find.

You fought for these good results and it is an inspiration to see that it is paying off. Happy days!

Great news! Congratulations!



I like the verse you quote in your signature.......

Another great one is the one right prior.. I have an autographed photo of Kurt Warner (QB of the St Louis Rams) - and he signed with a reference to Matthew 6:33

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
