The call finally came this morning around 9, Lymph nodes showed no sign of cancer.  All clear, back to 8 months cancer free and going forward.  A huge weight lifted off my shoulders after 21 days of waiting.  I am sure those 21 days took a few months off the end of my life just worrying about it.

14 more clean months and I can call this episode of my life done.  Thanks for all of the prayers.

Went out and bought one lottery ticket this afternoon, don't want to spread my luck too thin....

This is great news! Way to go JD!!

I agree whole heartedly.  3 weeks of my life put on hold waiting for a verdict.  I had started planning on spending Christmas laid up in stitches.  No Alternative Deer season again this year.  Having to face the decision of advanced treatments again.  All kinds of things were running thru my mind. 

The biopsy was on nodes farther down the neck in the big muscle running up the collar bone.  It would have been a tougher area to operate on. 

While I was at Siteman last week with the biopsy, I picked up my scans on CD from the last year.  I read the PET report from the physician that interprets the scans, he had found a 5mm nodule on my lower right lung that had not showed up on other tests.  None of the docs had bothered to mention that finding, just the lymph nodes.  But it scared me more than anything else, that is where the cancer I had would end up as it progressed, lungs or bone.  14 months elapsed from first surgery till the second one, I have been worried that it spread elsewhere during that time outside of the neck area.  When I spoke to them today, they cleared that up also.  It was just a normal spot on the lungs for a man my age.  And, since this was my first scan of the complete torso since March, it did no show anything anywhere else.  I can be sure that it is not hiding somewhere else.

It has been a rough 3 weeks of waiting.

Can’t imagine that stress JD, all I can say is that I’m sure it’s such a relief to know that it’s all clear. Nothing else matters other than all clear!!! 

Merry Christmas, I’m sure you’ll be enjoying it much more this year!
