Michael Douglas has beaten his cancer.  "I feel good, relieved," Douglas tells Matt Lauer in a Today Show interview this morning.  "The tumor is gone.  But, you know, I have to check out on a monthly basis now to maintain, Douglas says."  I think the odds are good with the tumor gone.  As he recovers, the actor says his appetite is back, and he's slowly gaining the weight he lost during his illness.  Out of the 32 lbs he lost, Douglas has put about 12 lbs back on.

If you're like me, you're very happy but also very surprised at the outcome, that type of cancer survival rate is very low, but return rate is also very high.  I certainly wish him a very speedy recovery and good health in the future.  I've always been a huge fan.
