    Awesome good news to report!

    This is Pam reporting back with with news about my recovery... well I think
    the journey is coming to an end.

    I saw the surgeon yesterday and he said my recovery has been going better than expected and he's released me to return to all my activities including cycling. Whoo-hoo!

    And even better news... I saw the oncologist today and we discussed my case and he does not feel chemo will improve my changes so NO CHEMO! Double Whoo-hoo!!!! I pretty much dreaded the chemo the most.

    I still have to follow-up with the oncologist 2 - 3 times a year for awhile and most liekly have colonoscopies for the next 3 years, but I'm not going to sweat the minor stuff.

    Anyway thanks so much to everyone for being so kind and listening to me go on about the cancer. A special thanks goes out to Trekhawk and Ninaonbike.

    Now to start exercising on a regular basis, lose some weight (my goal 25 lbs) and stay healthy through the next year!!!
