Topic: A special day

Hello all,

Yesterday, January 29, 2012 was my 5th anniversary for being cancer free!  I had surgery on January 29, 2007 at IU Med Center in Indianapolis where the doc removed the right lobe of my liver and my gallbladder.  I am amazed that the time has gone by so quickly. 

My son, daughter in law and little grand-daughter took me and any husband to PF Changs, my favorite Chinese restaurant, for some great food!  They even brought me beautiful spring flowers.

I wanted to send out hope to all or you survivors to remind you that miracles do happen! Keep fighting!

My thoughts and prayers go out to each and every one of you.

Hugs,
Sue

Today is a new day. Congratulations, you are already a survivor!

Congratulations Sue!  P.F. Changs you said?  What a perfect place to celebrate.  It's one of my favorite restaurants....they have a great gluten-free menu. 

I'll add my good news to this post.  In January 2012, I hit the 3 year mark for being cancer-free.  smile

Hugs,
Betsy

Betsy and Sue,

Congratulations to you both!!!  I've been reading a few of your older posts and you are definitely inspiring to me!  I had my surgery in Jan. 2010 so hit the 2-year mark this month and am also cancer free and feeling good.  Actually, today I rode my bike 10 miles and briskly walked for 45 minutes. Thanks for posting your good news....certainly gives me hope!

Big hugs to you both!
