    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Went to ER for a severe stomach ache, and left the hospital a week later with diagnosis.

    "Wait and See" or treatment.

    Decision Point

    The idea of wait and see was apalling to me.

    Celebration

    I finally have an oncologist that I feel comfortable with. He gave me information and answered questions that I haven't had for two years. Thank God for the angels that he sends to us in the form of awesome doctors and their nurses. It makes the journey and living with the diagnoses so much easier when you have a connection with your medical team.

    Oh No

    Ended up in ICU due to chest pains. Diagnosed as possible arterial spasms. Also could be nueropathy due to chemo. Doctors are also considering that it could be fibromyalgia.

    Remission

    Celebration

    My PET scan came back CLEAN! I am sooo excited and relieved! Thank you to everyone for their support and prayers! I only have one more round of maintenance chemo! Now I have to figure out "what's next". I don't know how to live life without cancer as a center point. Any suggestions?
