club Remission

Yep another clean PET scan. Pretty much my birthday and Christmas wish rolled all up into a 2 page print out from Hopkins. I couldn't have asked for anything more. So back again in three months. The next test will be after my transplant 1 year anniversary. I guess if I am likely to relapse he said statistically it happens within the first 2 years. So I am almost to that milestone as well. He also confirmed that indeed I am technically in remission but not cured. They don't declare you cured until 5 years of good scans. Alex will be in school by then. Okay I am getting ahead of myself....I guess good news does that to me.

Today's trip to Hopkins reminded me of way too much. The smells, chemo, bad food, no hair, feeling shitty. I am so thankful not to be in that place anymore. I thank god for giving me a new lease on life - life is good.
