Today is a special day of thanks because 8 years ago today my doctor released me from her care and I was cancer free. As I was leaving her office I said I would see her in 25 years. She stopped me leaving and explained that the cancer was not an easy one to beat and most people had only a remission of three years. So after 8 years I really may have beaten it. Unfortunately after the seizures a few weeks ago my doctor insisted on tests because the cancer often comes back in the brain. They found nothing in my head which I have been saying for years! So today is special for me and I am grateful that my doctor was cautious and wrong.
