OK world the scan results are in.  All signs of cancer are GONE.  Yes thank you for all the prayers because they worked.  Doctor says I am not in remission and am far from being out of the woods yet.  There is something on the thyroid that must be scanned at the end of the month and other spots that they believe are scar tissue.  I was stunned when I got this news and couldn’t think of any questions to ask at the time other than am I in remission and that answer was no.  Started new round of chemo minus the dreaded shot and add to that a new pill that I must take everyday.  I did look around the chemo room and wondered why me.  I know it’s hard for some people to understand but I am not at the top of the ladder with this news because if the cancer comes back which with stage 4 is likely I won’t have that far to fall.  But for now the news is definitely good.  But with good news comes bad.  My rock and strength (my neighbor) who is battling this disease and has overcome it once has not had good results with her new chemo and has stopped all treatment.  Cancer has spread to her liver and she was quite sick.  She is not expected to make it to Christmas.  I haven’t seen her since she got this news as she is currently with out of state family who are here to visit probably for the last time.  Going to see her when they leave is going to be so very hard.  What do I say.  I just don’t know.
