Dear CArla,

I am afraid I am getting you and Ken mixed up. Exuse me pls. Thank you
for the message and yes ironically that is exactly what our oncologist
said in Barbs case. His words were, about four months ago, "a 6 month
prognosis into a 3 year plus prognosis". Barb what ever you are doing,
continue" and then he hugged her. All three of us cried for joy.

Carla, thank you and we prayed for you that the pet scan would detect
much more than cat scans. It worked for your best interest and that is
so important.  You are indeed a miracle.

God Bless YOu
Marty and Barb
