      Had Cat Scans  Sat. 11/16. Saw doc @ NYU Clinical Cancer Center this afternoon11/19. Results were as good as it gets.Dr. Anna Pavlick says all the liver.kidney, blood levels were great and the scans were clean.This is after taken off "Z" and switching to Tafinlar (dabrafenib) on 8/25 My run with Zelboraf was just 2 weeks shy of 2 years..This news came just in time to ease my anxiety.As tomorrow I leave for San Diego to board a cruise ship on Thursday for a 15 day cruise to Hawaai with a stop in Mexico.Always wanted to visit Pearl Harbor and the Hawaaain Islands.This is right after spending last week in National Harbor ,Oxon Hill,Md. with grandkids & son & daughter-in-law. National Harbor is just outside the D.C. city limits so spent the week sight seeing.I just wanted to post some good news after reading so much bad news recently on the bulletin board.Like all of us here just hoping to be here when medicine finally finds the way to live with melanoma as a chronic condition.Praying that day comes soon .You are always in my prayers.Beat the Beast.      Al
