Not the Best photos I have taken but they are a type of celebration for me. Though the clouds haven't gone I CAN see clearly now.....A cloud of impending doom has been lifted from my shoulders. My trip to Vanderbilt University Medical Center yesterday yielded the good word that my ordeal with my bladder cancer is over for now. I will still have examinations periodically for the rest of my life but the 18 months of treatments and biopsies I've endured are now over...I'm at the moment totally cancer free and do not now need treatments...So these poor photos are my way of saying I see a brighter day ahead and can actually make plans for a life that for now anyway is not revolving around the Cancer! Thank you to everyone that has given prayers and support during this time...With out you I may not have made it!! Thank you my friends Thank you!

Ed

Well worth a celebration, congratulations Ed! I do recommend the Canadian whisky advertized by Ira in another thread.:-)

You've even put a silver lining frame around the clouds.

I didn't know about your problem, but I'm really glad you are out of it. I would say more then a whisky, you deserve a full DA* setup now

Great news! And I love your pictures. It does sound like you should do something nice for yourself in celebration (like buy a new lens...).

Exellent news. Definitely worth a whisky, or bourbon, or a new lens, or all 3!
