Had surgery to remove my questionable lymph node and my chemo port during the second week of December.  Thank God I did as the pathologist called yesterday and said that the lymph node had some live cells in it. I can now say with confidence that I am currently cancer free!  I will follow up every 3 months with my doctors and have 2 CAT scans each time for the next 5 years.  Thank you hardly seems like enough for all of your support and messages to me.  They truly made a difference for me every day of my treatment. I would read them at night before I went to bed to go to sleep with positive thoughts and prayers in my head. Happy New Year to everyone and I hope it will be a healthy one as well for each and every one of us.
