My goodness, MK, I just don't understand why people with mets are afraid of scaring the newbies. We all know, even the newbies, what the odds are with this disease, and to me, it is always an inspiration to hear from our friends who are keeping up their fight through recurrence after recurrence, or hang in there for years after the doctors had dared let them hope for.
I remember Cyndy saying once that her doctor told her to look at mets as you would look at diabetes...as a chronic disease. And while her disease has been chronic, she has done a lot of living in the years she's been with us!
Cyndy, if you're out there reading this, I hope you'll come and post occasionally. Girl, you don't have to talk about the cancer...tell us about the grandbabies or the trips or the stopped up toilet! This board isn't all about cancer...it's about our lives, too.
If all I had to talk about was my cancer, well, I wouldn't have much to say. And we all know that I make it a policy to always have something to say! LOL
Love and hugs to all...
