Hi Mia,  

    Well, I went for my 6 mth ct check up, and I'm still the same, NED.  Hoping you find that too, hoping your ct scans are boring to the doctors, and nothing to be found.

     After saying that, I really don't know what the chances are that they got it all for you.  I would hope so, since they were in there and took out the tumor and lymphnodes.  Scanxiety sucks I'm here to tell you.  I can also tell you that as time goes by, it gets a little less stressful, but we all get anxious when it comes time again for our CT scans to see if all is going well.

      So, you get your ct scan on Sat, then have to wait for the results.  I got mine on a this past Mon, and results on a Wed.  I know it's easier said than done, but try not to worry.  Worry actually helps nothing, and just causes us stress.  

     I'll keep rooting for you in my prayers, now go on out there and enjoy this (finally for me anyway) spring day!  It's going to be 55 here in Wisconsin for me today!!  Yipee!!  I want spring so badly.

Take care, Helen

Oh I'm sorry, NED is no evidence of disease.  That's a great thing to hear, and that's what I'm hoping for you!!
