    Oh No (Cancerous lung tumor): After coming out of colon cancer removal a yr ago Dec. I end up with pneumonia that almost took me out. Then at the end of October they find cancer in my right upper lobe. Had a lobectomy in December they (again) got all the caner. Thank you Lord. Dealing with nerve pain in chest and under my right arm. I still have a couple of weeks to recoop before I can start doing "normal" things again. I have some good news too though they got all the cancer AND...am in remission on my CLL! Still fighting no matter what! God bless us all and keep fighting!

    It's been a long time since I posted anything. In November I had several scans and found there was a cancerous tumor in my upper right lobe. Before Christmas I had a lobectomy. Home before Christmas...surgeon removed all cancer. The nerve pain is the worst. Feels like shredded chest muscles and a terribly bad burn. It seems that almost every year something else pops up but I continue to fight on. I do have good news I am in remission on my CLL! YAY! In the last year and a half I've had colon cancer, pneumonia and now lung cancer BUT I'm in remission! lol Still fighting and winning...God bless and stay safe!

    Oh No (Just Diagnosed): Last week I was diagnosed with colon cancer after noticing my stools were different. I finally achieve clinical remission and now this... I go for surgery on the 23rd. My doctor's feel that it is in an early stage and because I'm on an ongoing treatment it kept the cancer from growing out of control. My oncologist says that I won't need radiation or intensive chemo for which I am eternally grateful. Just another set back to fight my way through.

    Celebration (Remission): YAY! My oncologist told me that I was in "clinical remission". I haven't heard that for several years! I am still taking my Venclexta and doing my monthly Rituxin for maintenance I'm told, but hey it's great news for me!
