Annette- Congratulations on your five-year mark... tthey say there is less chance of a recurrance once you reach 5 years... but of course that is a moot point when you know of someone who's been dx after 5-yrs...it is all really a crap shoot, and thats what is so hard to deal with, in my opinion.
Honestly, I would be so thrilled to see my 5-yr mark (which would be 2/21/06) and I just hope and pray that this year is a good one...for all of us. I never thought when I was dx that I would even see 2005....the onc's "50/50 chance to see 5-years" comment is what is burned into my head....so I really do feel as if I am walking out onto thin ice! Let's walk out there together... eh?
hugs and holiday wishes,
Congratulations!! Five years is five years. We don't ask for much do we? Here's to five years x ten to continue to be your friends.
Love and hugs,
Many Holiday Blessings to All
Life may not be the party
we hoped for,
but while we are here we might as
(((Annette))), I wish I could just hug you and make that 5 yr. anniversary worry go away, but I can't. I can only say take one day at a time and suddenly it'll be six yrs, etc. We know that every day is a gift from G-d whether we have a chronic disease like BC or are plain, old healthy. So grab every day that comes along and run with it.
I love reading about everyone's Christmas gifts. Let's hear about more of them. So much has happened since Chanukah that I can't remember WHAT I got. I do know that I'm here to write to all of you and that is a wonderful, wonderful gift.
I'm hugging you from not so sunny Nevada, Annette. Love, Luci
I know that it has been a bittersweet year, Annette. But, aren't you glad you've had these past five years? Congratulations on passing the five year mark. It is just one more milestone on this journey. None of us knows when the end of this life may come. Like Luci said, we just have to appreciate every day. And, I know my days are richer and fuller for knowing the women here. So, I am glad we have made it this far.
Jo-Ann, you gotta slow down, my friend. I thought my mother had a heavy foot, but you have her beat. Hugs to all, Lauri
