Off topic ... Good news from last night

jeannespinesMay 9, 2014

I posted this on Facebook last nite ... after a year of fighting Ovarian cancer I rec'd a phone call last nite from my Iowa City doctor's office (I had been there on Mon & was awaiting the news). I know some of you have been following my progress & I just want to thank you for your good thoughts & Prayers! ~~hugs, Jeanne S.

"Just received the phone call from Iowa City I've been waiting for since our appointment on Mon. The cat scan that was re-read by my doctor & radiologists in Iowa City concludes that the CT does not show any "residual disease!!!" What that means is there doesn't appear to be any cancer cells that remain after attempts to remove cancer has been made). The ARNP (on the phone) cautioned me that it is always possible there could be some small cells that the CT wouldn't show ... BUT, I am ecstatic! I am a free woman for 3 mos!! I will see my local cancer dr here in July & not go back to Iowa City until the first part of Aug. I am thanking God ... my family & friends for holding me up this past year. ~~hugs"

Now I can work on getting stronger again ~~ & enjoy the summer days ahead! Jeanne S.

âÂÂHopeâ is the thing with feathers -

That perches in the soul -

And sings the tune without the words -

And never stops - at all -

And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -

And sore must be the storm -

That could abash the little Bird

That kept so many warm -

IâÂÂve heard it in the chillest land -

And on the strangest Sea -

Yet - never - in Extremity,

It asked a crumb - of me.

by Emily Dickinson

As you know, Jeanne, you had me crying and doing the Happy Dance all at the same time. And I can't begin to tell you how much your courage and strength through-out this terrible ordeal has touched me. You are so inspiring, and show there is light even in the darkest storm of one's life. I admire you more than you'll ever
know.
love and hugs,
Karen

âÂÂAnd once the storm is over, you wonâÂÂt remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You wonâÂÂt even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you wonâÂÂt be the same person who walked in."
