See ya next year Ironwood!!

Yes my friends, I'm now on the 6 month plan!! YES! I got the good news just a bit ago and as Scott said, " you are doing very very very well." So whatever I'm doing is working and I plan on keeping it that way! So with this latest news I am now free from anything cancer related till 2012 and I can get the last piece of "cancer" taken out of me...my port. I will be calling tomorrow to hopefully get that scheduled. Surgery. Again. Happy surgery though. Although it doesn't bother me and half the time I forget it's there, it still is a constant reminder of what I have been through. Granted there will always be a scar but scars are signs of toughness and I like that. I will keep you all posted on when my surgery will be. THEN, I will be done with anything cancer related till next year. Ahhhh....so nice. Even Doctor Nabong wished me a Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Ha!

It still seems so crazy what has happened in the last 18 months. Unreal. Time sure flies although it feels like yesterday I was just given the news I beat it and now look it's over a year later. I'm sure 6 months will creep on me fast too. This will be the longest I've gone without having to go to Ironwood so it will be interesting, but honestly, I won't miss it. :)

I am playing hostess to 2 events this month, 1 being Bunco tomorrow night, so I best start getting ready. Now that I have a permi-smile all is well in the world. Mom and Dad are safely back from frolicking with gorillas (I'm not kidding), I'm still cancer free and life, well it's just great. Thank you all for your support, love and prayers. It means the world to me. I know you all are smiling along with me. I will be back soon...you won't have to wait 6 months to hear from me. I promise.

Love you all--

Erin
