The nurse was reading the oncologists report who she has worked with for many years. She said 'he never writes his reports like this! It is full of exclamation marks and positive emotions!' I know when I spoke with him he was a pretty dry professional guy. So I will take this as a positive. I have made dietary changes and every day I say cancer is not welcome in my body. Since I first found out my diagnosis I was ready to fight. It was much harder knowing something was wrong and not being heard. All my praise goes out to my new family doctor at the Lake Louise Medical Clinic who listened to me and diagnosed me within 2 weeks after a 6 month battle if trying to be heard elsewhere. I feel extremely fortunate for the way things are playing out, for the way my body and mind are working, for my medical team, and for the support of family and friends. What a journey and learning experience! My thoughts and prayers go out to all who battle this horrible disease. God bless! Thanks AO for your continued support!
Cancer has been a hard hitter in my family. Not often I see great news on treatment --- this is outstanding and really tugged my heart in a good way. I am so glad for you and wish you all the best on the future.
