    Hi, Grace! How are you? I thought I'd check in and say Hi. I haven't seen a post from you in a long time. Things are fine on my end. Is my memory correct in that you are a Patriots fan...? If so, I'm thinking you're pretty happy about this weekend. Take care.

    Hugs,

    Grace : )

      I am doing well, thank your for checking on me...the biopsy in September showed necrosis and other non malignant changes but no cancer! My surgeon called me on my birthday to give me the good news. I am going ahead with the Gentic Counselling in April.
      You have a good memory...we are HUGE Pats fans! Last year I was in the hospital for 10 days including Super Bowl Sunday and it took 5 months to recover from an infection that developed after surgery to remove 12" of my sigmoid (not cancer related) in January.... I had weeks of IV antibiotics and the VNA for dressing changes from February through May...it was a very l.o.n.g winter...
      This Sunday we will all be at my brother's house for the game...my children get together with their cousins and all their kids for a huge party. My daughter teaches kindergarten in Walpole, which is the town next to Foxboro where their stadium is located, and today was Pats' Rally Day...just about every child wore a Pats jersey with Brady's #12 being the most popular!
      I am on this site every day as a moderator but do not post as much as I used to...I do follow your threads and love your insights.
      Again, thanks for connecting! And just 2 words: GO PATS!

      Hi! Congratulations on the good medical news! I'm very happy to hear that.

      And congratulations on your team's win yesterday! I do remember that last year you were in the hospital for the Super Bowl. I'm glad you were able to enjoy it with your family this year.

      It was a great day and a wonderful win. The whole family had a blast...six titles! I like the sound of "Seven would be Heaven!"

    Welcome to this wonderful site where you will find great people, information and support. Be sure to ask questions using the "questions" tab at the top of the page. We have all been where you are now. Somethings I found helpful were having someone with me at appointment as there is so much discussed that an extra set of ears is a good thing...that person can also take notes for you. I used a loose leaf binder that I divided into sections (pathology reports, surgery, oncology, radiation, work related LOA paperwork, insurance)...all important phone and fax numbers were in one place ...
    Wishing you good luck and a warm welcome.
