since my breast cancer was detected. I had my last appointment today with the cancer center. Five years cancer free. They said I didn't have to come back unless I detect something else down the road. Knock on wood that doesn't happen. I feel like I have reached a real milestone.

    Thanks everyone. My breast cancer was caught with a mammogram so I am a real defender of getting them yearly despite all the articles lately stating they aren't necessary. If you are the one case where the mammogram detects the cancer, then they are definitely necessary.

    hmmm...I was thinking about skipping mine this year, since the past few have been great...
    Now, if I could just skip the yearly Paps....lol

    Ever since the sports thread wars I have sensed a special connection between [edit] & Wile. Like the connection oil has to water. I almost can't speak of it. Wait....my eyes are misting. ~asq
