RF,

Congratulations on your retirement. You've earned it.

Happiness is a clean CT scan. My next one is in Aug.

latest scans and retirement

Well it was this time last year that I was undergoing radiation treatment with the surgery still to come. Received my latest test results and the Oncology doctor said they looked, "Pristine". Those pesky lung nodules have been reclassified as calcified "Granulomas" , nothing changing there or anywhere. "No evidense of Disease". Next scans 4 months out again, but a little confidence builder going my way. Retirement has been busy with neglected home repairs to catch up on but what a joy to have the option at a time like this. Spend several hours a day, just doing things as I can on my own schedule, with a high priority on exercise and time to do it. It's the laundry and the cooking that gets in the way.

You had to know the lady in the pink outfit would have to do her dance!

Now, get in the kitchen and make me a sandwich.

Ratty I just a couple of days ago did a search here to see if I missed any of your recent posts! I am sooooo glad to read this news. Who knew being "pristine" would be such a happy description?
