I don’t have the words. I’m speechless and the emotions are hard to fully articulate right now. On Monday the 30th of April I had the post chemotherapy PET scan in Sheffield. I went with my hubby and mother. It was harder than the first PET scan. It felt like more was resting on … More It looks like complete remission.
