Topic: LET'S CELEBRATE

Hi Family, it's Teddy & Lainy here with some awesome news. Our Oncologist called us about an hour ago with our test results from last weeks PET and MRI.

Teddy: Totally clean in bile ducts, pancreas and liver!! Now we really don't know where the rising CA19 is coming from and we kind of don't care anymore.
Just doesn't get any better than this. A 41/2 year Whipple survivor and at 77 still going strong.

Lainy: Pet Scan showed no cancer. There seems to be an inflammation at the end of the scar where everything kind of packages together and I do believe its playing a little with my tummy but no cancer. Mine was a GIST tumor an other rare and returning cancer.  When I say we are having our own couples cancer dance I am not kidding and the dancing must be what is helping. Keep those tunes playing!

Yesterday moved my 93 yr old mom to a better facility than where she was and that was a huge amount of stress. I always tell my kids that just when you feel you can't get any lower something (s) always happens to turn your luck around!!! smile:):)

Re: LET'S CELEBRATE

Re: LET'S CELEBRATE

Hi Jolene and how are you doing?  It's been going. You know that roller coaster of ups and downs but we are extremely lucky. I was telling Marion that I have been running on over load as I am also dealing with my 93 yr old mom whom we just moved from her Assisted Care out here to a Private home care. Much needed move and after only 3 days we can already see a difference. So that is done. Next is to sell the house and in between that setting appointments etc.  But, as long as we keep getting good news, it's all OK. So good to see your smiling face!

Re: LET'S CELEBRATE

Lainy,
TERRIFIC! I am tickled pink. I think I need to come to Phoenix and have you and Teddy sprinkle me with your magic dust.

May the two of you continue to dance to the music and away from the bad times.
