End of Feb scan was clean- stage 4 survivor

Postby mymom » Tue Mar 24, 2020 8:58 pm

Hi all. I don’t remember if I told everyone another clean scan. Diagnosed stage 4 May 2011. She has now had clean scans since October 2015. We are very fortunate. She is doing well but given the circumstances I haven’t seen her since May 5 because we went on lockdown in the town we live in March 12. We had plans for coffee- my parents are only 10 min away- but it didn’t happen. Mom is on lockdown and my dad goes back and forth to his two person office (himself and a co worker) for his business- CPA/payroll. He can’t work from home. He goes to his office and back home. I run all errands for them so he goes nowhere. He can’t work from home and he needs to get paid but he has contact with almost no one. We Skype with them. Mom understands but misses me and grandkids but soon enough this will end. I pray for everyone on this board during these difficult times. To be fighting the cancer beast in this current world is incomprehensible. Love to all, lisa
