I hope this will be my last update about the state of my health, and it's great news.

When I saw my oncologist last week, I received a clean bill of health.  That doesn't mean of course that I'll never have cancer again.  It could return someday, but for now I am cancer free and having the port-a-cath in my chest removed in July.  My last CT scan showed nothing to be concerned about and I feel absolutely wonderful.  I don't even have to see my oncologist again until September.  

So, I hope your summer is as fun-filled and happy as mine is promising to be.  They say attitude is key in beating cancer.  If so, you and my Facebook friends can pat yourselves on the back for being a major force in my getting well.  I don't know what I would have done without all of you and your encouragement.

Thank you, one and all.


  1. I am thrilled by your wonderful news! Here's to your continued good health!

  2. Barbara, I am THRILLED for you. Enjoy your summer.

  3. That's marvellous news! (I'm just catching up with reading blogs) Just knowing you are cancer free (and I know that feeling too) means that summer will be wonderful - long may we be so.

  4. Wonderful news Barbara! I am so happy for you. May you have THE BEST Summer ever.
