    As Good As It Gets

    I had put off my mamo and doctor appointments for about a month I was so nervous about going. My husband went with me. All tests were normal and they said I'm as good as I can be. No new tumors found. I am considering the arimadex I might start it when I'm ready. When I left the hospital I felt finally the cancer that took over my life 13 months ago is in the past "been there done that!!", don't look back, and pass go and collect $200. The fear and anger I felt for so long is better, a lot better.
    To anyone who is just starting out, this has been a crazy long journey that I thought I would not make it thru both physically and mentally. But I did with smiles and tears some good days and some not so good. But I did make it thru. I wish my Dad could have been here to share this good news, he passed away one month ago. He cheered me on the whole way and "pushed" me thru some days.
    If anyone asked what can they do to help just answer "Pray"

    What good news! I am celebrating for you!

    And how good of you to share this with the community...especially with the newbies who just can't quite see the end of the tunnel yet. You've given them hope!

    As for Dad? Kiddo, he is standing right beside you, smiling bigger than anyone and holding you very near! Believe it!

    Just when the caterpillar thought her world was over, she became a butterfly! Don't give up five minutes before the miracle!!

    Thank you for sharing. My mom passed away 4.5 months ago. No matter what the circumstances, it is a blow.
