The new new picture was taken in California the week before I ended up in the hospital.
I passed the five year mark on March 14, right before that trip. The most recent number I saw for the five year survival rate for metastatic colon cancer is 12%, and my first oncologist told me, reluctantly, with lots of caveats about the variability of the numbers, the prognosis was 12-24 months with treatment, 6-12 without. Yikes.
I passed 24 months in 2016. It’s been an adventure, I have no doubt that the body k is capable of healing if I can get out of its way, so operation ego death continues. Stay tuned , and as always, thank you thank you thank you!
