Many thanks to my DP family. Susan was diagnosed yesterday as CANCER FREE!Submitted by BMWJIM on Fri, 02/24/2012 - 21:34
I must tell you it has been the hardest thing either of us has ever faced. I personally could not have made it, if it wasn't for my family here at the DP.
Susan was given this news yesterday and I must admit that the smile on her face was priceless. I haven't seen that smile in over a year.
We have just been living, if you could call it that. To give you an idea of the difference, she is scheduled to go to a class at a local nursery tomorrow and seems so happy about it. We will get into the greenhouse this weekend and finish planting her flower seeds (over 5000). I look forward to this.
The only thing we have left is the surgery on March 12th to reverse the illiostomy(?) bag. After recovery, I will arrange a trip to the mountains for a little motorcycle riding and just relaxation. Many of the oldtimers here at the DP know how important that would be for me.
Once again, my many thanks for the prayers, e-mails, alternative remedies, good thoughts, and just plain being there. I thank you all.
If you can help keep this post bumped for a few days so my friends can see my heart, it would be most appreciated. I love you all for what you have done for me.
A very special thank you to Michael. You provided more good will and support than anyone could imagine. I will always consider you a patriot and true friend. I hope one day to meet you in person and introduce you to my wonderful wife. Thanks Michael.
