After 7 rounds of chemo, a massive op and 2 further rounds of chemo her scans are now clear of cancer. It's as cancer free as she is going to get and the oncologist has told her to go away and enjoy life. She will have 3 monthly tests for a while but the hope is is that it is years before it comes back.
I just wanted to thank you all for your positive thoughts and best wishes. It makes mum well up to know how many people are rooting for her.
