Hello one and all :-)

Its nice to kibbitz with you again. Been a while. Wanted to say that I went to my onc this past Monday and got the results from scans of brain, neck chest, abdomen and pelvic region, as well as a bone scan, and everything is clear. I had been worried because of increasing pain in neck and shoulder region as well as lower back. So good news there. We don't know what is causing this, but the doctor has ordered up an MRI of the whole spine so we will wait and see.

My hearing has progressively gotten worse. I went to an audiologist and they have referred me to an ear, nose and throat specialist. Here's hoping they can remedy this as its been quite a burden. Ear phones aren't they answer I was told.

Nausea under control (thank God) and appetite returning. Even gained back 2 of the 20 lbs i lost in a short time.

So all in all, much to be grateful for. Do not for a second think that I don't know the reason for all this good news and that's you and your prayers folks. I truly believe in the power of prayer and am eternally

grateful to you all for them. Keep em coming my friends!!

God Bless us All,

Not happy to read about the hearing problems--I hope they can take take of this lickety split.

Still HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY to read your post and, as Don stated, "See your smilin' face".
