I am Cured!

I got the call today. Three and a half years, two surgeries.
It's gone without a trace. Cured!

Thanks to everyone for your support, prayers and positive vibes...

Awesome news! What a great way to ring in the new year!

I've never had cancer but both my wife and mother. My wife's was in her neck and jaw and they got it all in one surgery and she's been cancer free for 23 yrs. My mother had breast cancer a few years ago and she still takes meds but she's doing fine.

Wooot! That's fantastic. Really and truly, what wonderful news. None better.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Congratulations, Patrick! I just came upon your blog from a comment you left of Francisca's blog. I am a ten year survivor of thyroid cancer.
I enjoyed your photos of the California coast as I recently returned from a similar trip. Happy and healthy 2012!

Ms. Becky said...

this is wonderful news. I didn't know of your on-going battle. My endocrinologist assures me that thyroid cancer in women is uncommon as she monitors my nodes/spots. the fine-needle aspirations are a real drag. I'm so happy that you're in the clear. this is joyful news for the new year. wishing you all the best in 2012 Pat.

Francisca said...

Pat, I am late getting here, but really, this is the BEST news I've had since your post 12/22! I wish you and yours a wonderful 2012... with much shooting and sharing! I hope one day our paths will cross in person. From your authentic writing I feel I've gotten to know you a bit and what I know I like a lot. :-)

Ebie said...

Happy New Year Pat, and congratulations for this clean bill of health!

Cheers!

Steadfast Ahoy! said...

I'm sending up fireworks and singing hallelujahs for You, Patrick.

Rek said...

I am late to the party as always...been away...so glad this new year starts on a healthy note.
A very happy new year filled with love and good health, and wealth is not something we can really complain against. :)

Awesome! Brightens the day.

Finding out you have a sister you didn't know about is/can be awesome too!
Sounds like there are at least a couple of really awesome things that happened in 2011 :)
