6 Years Clear :-)

It’s official!
My 6-year chest X-ray is clear. I had an abdominal scan in March after December’s intestinal blockage/hernia operation; also clear.
With deep gratitude I stepped into St. Mary’s Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption in Covington, Ky. I lit a cobalt-blue candle in front of Mother Mary, got on my knees, and gave heartfelt thanks for this incredible miracle.
And for the wonderful support of family and friends, for the conventional treatments that bought me time, and for all the healing options available.

Also of note:

  1. So glad to hear you’ve reached the 6 year mark! You may remember me. I’m now 8 years free from high grade undifferentiated uterine sarcom. However, I’ve developed radiation enteropathy and vision problems that are so far unexplained. Was your intestinal obstruction attributed to radiation?

    1. Great to hear from you, especially 8 years free! Another wonderful miracle! The intestinal obstruction was caused by a hernia that has been viewed on a scan right after treatment ended. The intestines got stuck in the hole and needed to be pulled out. Sorry about the enteropathy and vision issues. I have dry eyes from taxotere, and take drops for that. I didn’t have radiation. I hope someone finds a good solution for both!
