My dear friends and relatives who have so faithfully remembered me in thought and prayer and with company and kind help . . . I cannot begin to tell you the strength and hope I gained throughout these months . . . it was a year ago September that I was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, adenocarcinoma. It seems like both yesterday and eons ago.
On Monday I had a PET scan and today I saw my oncologist. I am officially in remission. For right now, this means that I’ll be fine until/if the cancer mutates and the chemo I take daily stops working. However, there are now two more forms of targeted chemo approved after this one. I have also discovered how to avoid some of the tummy discomfort I was getting on a daily basis with the medication. To say that I am “walking on sunshine” is an understatement. That being said, I am also able to do more again and am really feeling like my old self. As I told the oncologist – I’m so happy I planted those bulbs last fall!!!!!!
