Matt Lauer catches up with Michael Douglas …

Michael Douglas sat down with Matt Lauer this morning on The Today Show to talk about his throat cancer battle. The news is promising indeed and the veteran actor claims to be cancer free and believes he “has it beat.”

Douglas will continue to be vigilant with monthly visits to his Oncologist but he is upbeat and reports that he is “eating like a pig” and has already gained back 12 of the 32 pounds that he lost during his rigorous chemo and radiation treatments.

The downside right now is the his salivary ducts have shut down, causing him dry mouth symptoms, but the upside is that his appetite has returned.

The family spent time at Disney World in Florida over Thanksgiving – check out their wild roller coaster ride photos.
