Cascadia RULES...but it is a tad moist on occasion !!!!

Enjoy your "break", PM me if you wanna chat though, I'll be around cooking up some kind of family potlatch for Sunday dinner.

Cheers and be well

I just read your "new" stage. It seems to fit me perfectly, I had 17/28 LNs tested positive for cancer, have no new sites but two nodes were attached to my ascending aorta. I live in a small city and there wasn't a doc in town who wanted to go after them, so Avastin had to do it. Hence stage 4 and watching a "spot" on my lung which isn't lighting up and was found pre-surgery. It seems that you and I have a lot in common. I was in medical field (Army medic-R.N. and certified Respiratory tech.) I have to admit I knew nothing about oncology until---you get the picture. I definitely like the 3.5 people don't look at me like I need to prepare to die if I say stage 3 but do if I mention stage 4. Thanks for more3 than just a laugh.
