That’s what the doctor said. The CT scan came out good. The blood work was normal.  Feels like being born again. He wants to do another scan in 3 months. If everything continues to look good then they will take the chemo port out. After that every three month a follow up for 2 years. The oncologist is very happy by the way things are going and if he’s happy, I am definitely happy. 

It has been a long, hard road. Not as hard as others have had but hard nonetheless. I didn’t walk it alone. My wife was there every step of the way. It was extremely hard on her but she kept thinking positive and kept me going. My sister was there lending a helping hand. My kids and their wives, my family and my friends were there with me. This is something no one should face alone. 

Today at the waiting room I saw the faces of the patients and the faces of their loved ones. You can read their stories by looking at them. There was even a young girl, maybe 8 years old, with a tube in her neck. Even though I should have been jumping for joy, I felt so sad and angry because of what these folks have to go through. It breaks my heart to see that little girl trying to be a little girl while facing this terrible disease. So even though I am happy with my situation, I can’t get the picture of that little girl off my mind. I feel for her and for her family. Like her there are millions more. 

May god bless you all and thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.  This is not the end of the journal. I will keep posting.
