      Wow. I was confused the first time I read the message, but now after seeing Scott's response, it all made sense to me. Congratulations on 4 years after the I/O, which marks the time when the fight was physically on (my take is that the mental fight begins in earnest after a diagnosis, when you become a survivor). Here's to many more of these!

        I'm also eagerly anticipating 6/25/2007, which will mark two years from my L-RPLND. I'm scheduled for a CT scan on 6/20 and marker tests and oncologist visit on 6/27.
