Goodbye Chemo

I am celebrating today - I AM IN REMISSION.  

Today was the day I received results from my  CT Scan that I had 2 days ago.  NED - No Evidence of Disease - the cancer has not spread!!!!

While I type this I am still in shock - after everything 2014 and has held for me, I can't believe there is finally good news.  The truth of the matter, is I am cleared for now.  I have to have CT Scans every 3-6 months for the rest of my life to see when this cancer rears its ugly head again.  They will keep a close eye on me and I will keep my port in my chest for upwards of 2 years - just in case.  I will still go to my Oncologist once a month for a check up and other procedures. But for now, it is good.

Now that my chemotherapy is over, I move towards Pulmonary Rehabilitation.  Since I had 90% of my left lungs removed, I need rehab to strengthen the right side.  That entails a class 3 times a week for 6 weeks.  I do suffer from nausea daily from the chemo and they explained this could last for months.  This truly is a journey I will deal with forever but for right now, today, life is GREAT!!
