Hi everyone. I had bc surgery in 1995-Invasive ductal carcenoma. I had a mastectomy and 6 months of chemo. Until now, I have considered myself cured. But last week I had a PET scan for another condition, and the oncologist called me and said that something showed up in my thoracic spine. I really don't know what.They wanted me to have a MRI done, which I'm getting tomorrow (the 28th). I am so scared. I just turned 60, and felt sure I was done with cancer. My sister died in this past spring of lung cancer and she was only 68. I just don't want to go through what she did. I feel like it's just something I dreamed and really isn't happening. I'm hoping that it is anything but the cancer; But I don't know what, besides cancer, would light up in my spine like it did. Can there be other things? I live alone, so don't have many people to talk to. And I don't want to go crazy (at least I'm trying not to) until I know something for sure. You know, I've lost my job, since May 2008, and haven't found another, and have all kinds of other physical problems, and just wish something good would happen. I've always tried to be positive about everything, but it's getting hard. Sorry for ranting-I'm just really scared. Thanks for listening, and I'll let you know how the MRI turns out. God Bless. Kathy

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
