Yesterday I had a bone marrow biopsy (ouch!) And the diagnosis is definite.

I was told I may be able to go home in a couple weeks with continued treatment out of the Hinton Hospital as day treatment. I am still healthy otherwise and my organs are cancer free. I look like I typically do, too bad lol. So my strength and health will carry me through this. I remain positive and hold on to no anger or remorse. I am taking this daily and very hopeful for a near normal life. There is no doubt in my mind that the support and faith of family and friends has got me to where I am today! Thanks AO for being part of that! I still believe my words in my 1st post hold true!

Thank you to everyone on AO for posting your kind words of encouragement especially to those who are in a battle like me. My heart goes out to each and everyone of you and if you need support or want to share experiences please reach out to me. It would be good for both of us! The AO support group is strong!

I am starting to blah blah blah, I just had to share this bit of good news. Never give in and keep the faith!

Sincerely
Carl
When you first posted this thread, I just had no words, I've had to deal with about the same, while not me family members.

I'm so glad to hear this news, and you never blah blah blah bud, we are all part of this big group, and seem we all have each other's backs.

Once again, great news, and keep us posted... you got this!!

So I got a call from the oncologist and nurse at the CCI. I I was scared as heck by the call as the nurse was just about in tears. They were tears of joy!!! I don't know how they do this line of work, to me they are saints. So I have not finished my first round of chemotherapy yet but already they said my cancer enzymes are down by 50%. 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.

Wow. I started crying again as memories flooded back from my cancer diagnosis and getting great news after surgery. Great to hear you are in a much better place now as treatment is progressing well. Iíll pray for continued improvement.

Interesting you mentioned diet. Itís one Iíve heard myself. Removing carbs can help. Maybe later you can elaborate on what youíve done.

If you get to Calgary, Iíll have to take you out on my local lake fishing.

Stay strong and puck Cancer!

This is fantastic news, Teledogs!

I can guarantee that it's bringing hope to others here who are struggling with health issues of their own. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Sir!

I could talk about my childhood friend who lost his battle just days after our last visit. Or the battle my sister fought and lost, or my friend from grade school who lost her battel on Christmas day several years ago.

But I'm more concerned with your future beyond this life. Yes you have a future beyond this plain.

For all of us, our time on Earth is limited. We will all fight our final battle some day. What lies beyond is what counts in the long run.

I don't like to preach. It is much more comfortable to let someone else do that. But a friend says what needs to be said.

So all I will say is;

"Your sins are forgiven." "It is finished." "Only believe."

Some day I WILL see you in Heaven, hopefully many years from now, for both of us.
