    I'm so happy but still so stressed. Tomorrow I will feel better. The crazy part is, it's not me it's my husband but I seem to be more stressed than him.

     

    I wanted to share the good news. Keep fighting. Bob is Stage IV since April 2008 lung mets, IL-2  what appeared to be a complete response but intestinal mets showed up  a year after the lung mets. Surgery for the intestinal mets. NED now since July 2009. Thank you God! Thank you NIH.

      Hi Rebecca,

      So happy to  hear your good news.  Can't wait to say that for myself.   I have yet to be NED with this disease but I will be!!!  NIH is probably going to be my next stop if the current treatment does not improve things.

      But back to you guys…wonderful, wonderful!  Give yourself a day to come down from all the anxiety and then please go out and celebrate just the two of you!

      Regards,

      Jen

      What wonderful news!! 

      Sometimes after a few anxiety filled days it's hard to settle down and believe the great results.  Tomorrow you will wake up with a smile on your face.  So happy for your family.
