Way too long since my last post.  I'll give it another shot and try to stick with it, but have to figure out how to make this blog more visible on the net - so, will do some research when I'm finished here and hopefully get some more readers.

Health is still good (knock on wood).  I'm 62 now and last checkup was April of '14 and everything looked good. Of course, I no longer go to my Onocologist because I'm so far out, but my internist takes an x-ray of my chest every year.  What does make me a bit nervous is that my cancer did not show up on x-rays; had to have CT scan.  That's 4 tumors, and one being 2.5 cm, that didn't show up!  That still baffles me.  If you think you MIGHT have lung cancer, and your doc says your x-rays are clear, then insist on a CT.  Well, it's been 17 years ago I was diagnosed, and I must admit, when I say that to myself, I 99.9% believe it WILL NOT come back.  My Oncologist had told me that if it comes back, it's usually within 3 years. But, of course, there are always exceptions.

Please email me with any questions you have about my treatment, etc.  More than happy to share my experience.  Bye for now.
