Had a reaallly great day today! Giana’s birthday and we enjoyed it w/ the family and delicious amazing cakes baked by Ivy and Cara, had chemo and it wasn’t THAT bad (took some of the “scary” out), shared some wine with Scott and my friend Ann… and FINALLY got some GOOD news from the docs, on the most significant test yet – and well before I expected to hear it so no torturous waiting, either! AMEN!

The News?

The cancer has NOT spread beyond the lymph nodes, to any of my organs or bones. This stops my staging just short of being Stage 4. Wow. Close call.
