As we all know, things have not been so easy for Judy. Chemo, then radiation, a long road for any one. Finally radiation is done! The end of a road, and Judy sure faced it with courage and dignity and came through it all. Judy, congrats, it was not easy but you did it! Enjoy your day and be proud!
"If your number one goal is to make sure that everyone likes and approves of you, then you risk sacrificing your uniqueness and, therefore, your excellence."
Oh, wow! What a lovely thing to say! I just keep thinking how lucky I was/am, the idea being that things can always be worse. For my loving DH, Keith, for Delft herself, and for my friend Nancy, who's fighting colon cancer; on CM; on Laura's (Cruisenut) site; during chemo, and during radiation, there were always people who battled worse problems. I thank you, Delf, and I thank the Dear Lord, for another chance.
To those people on Chat tonight, when we talked about clutter: along with the hats, I should have added sun glasses, lotsa sunglasses!
Judy, You have traveled a long hard road. We on these boards have been right behind you cheering you on every step of the way. We care and we love you.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
I just wanted to say how much I admired Judy's wonderful sense of humour throughout her battle, she never failed to make me smile, even as she was facing the devil.
I was also thinking of Judy during my last 3 cruises while I did the "Walk for the Cure". Judy was my inspiration, - Way to go Judy!
Congratulations on this mile stone. We can't wait until you are in remission and ready to cruise again. Now go out and enjoy something with lots of garlic. When my dad was in Chemo seasoned food made him sick. That was in 1979 he went into remission in 1980 and the cancer has never reoccurred. I hope and pray you have the same sucess that my dad did.

Cheers to you
and garlic---Gilroy is right down the road--lol and the smell of garlic was in the air this morning-----
Judy - "u dun good"
Seriously, I am so happy that your radiation has come to an end. You have come thru such a "fiery" trial - and I know that you have been, and will continue to be a blessing to others who may face similiar situations in their own lives. I hope that your path is much easier from here one in.
Celebrate, Dance, Sing! I just can't express how happy I am for you.
