Still N.E.D.

Happy Thanksgiving one day late! I hope everyone enjoyed the day with family and friends.

I should have posted this back at the end of September but, again, that procrastination problem I'm working on...

I had my scans toward the end of September and with all humility and joy I can tell you that they were clean. My internventional radiologist/SIR-sphere-inserter-doctor, doctor Nosher who has been reading all of my scans since my SIR-sphere procedure 2 years ago said he couldn't find "a single solitary thing." The report stated that no new lesions, or previous existing lesions were detected.

Speechless. I really don't know what to even write. There are no words to describe the gratitude for getting another chance at life. There are no words to adequately thank all those who have been praying their guts out for me, those who know me and haven't even met me.

What can I ever say to Dr. Moriarty, and all my doctors and nurses who have helped save my life?

To my family, friends, my children, my husband? These feelings of gratitude, humility and joy I have not been able to express with words, I hope I can express them, if God's mercy stays with me, in how I live the rest of my life.

Thank you for your continued prayers and love my friends.

All Great Things,

I want to dedicate my clean, healthy scans in honor of my father-in-law Frank Shanahan who past away this past October 4th. You are deeply loved, and deeply missed. Still waters run deep.

You truly are an example of a modern day miracle. Your courage and humility are an example to us all, I am so proud to call you family. We had told Dad of your great scan results in his final weeks in ICU and if he had been able to speak I know he would have said how happy he was for you, Fran, Sydney and Ethan. No doubt he is looking down on us all from heaven. Miss him every day. Stay strong.
Love Teresa xx
PS Belated happy thanksgiving to all xx
