I've been home from surgery since last Thursday night. I feel pretty darn good, better than I imagined I would. The drains that I have are a huge Pain in the Ass, but tolerable. I'm slowing gaining movement in my arms, a little more everday.

My mom has been here for a week, and I truly don't know what we'd do without her help. My sister got here last night to take her shift. We're grateful to both of them.

But the news that overshadows all of that, is my doctor called today with the results of my final pathology. My right side was cancer free, which we figured. There was nothing left of the tumors in my left, and of the 23 nodes that se removed, ZERO were positive.

As of June 6, 2007, I AM CANCER FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm my surgeon's first 100% response to chemo, and I'm expecting a plaque and my picture up in her office, hee hee!

I am so excited I could jump up and down and scream, if it didn't hurt so much.

Thank you again for everyone's prayers, love and support, it obviously made the difference. Well just wanted to quick share the news.
