My husband has had 2 rounds of R-ICE and gets another PET scan tomorrow. Waiting until the next day for the results is stressful. Since he has been feeling good and doing quite a lot of stuff and hasn't felt any lymph nodes I am hopefull the R-ICE is doing it's job. I hope to get new that he will be moving on to transplant.

Feeling stressed, but hopeful.

Hi Katie,

The fact that he's felling well and active is a very good sign I think ☺.
Hugs to you and your husband and wishing for great results!

Try to get out and do something nice for yourself. Please keep us updated.

Thankfully my husband baked a lot last week. I have cookies and brownies to keep me happy! Consumed within reason of course ;)

Hi Katie,
I will keep positive thoughts for hubby to have clean scan results. It's always so stressful when we have scans done and then have to wait for the news...we've all been through it and know exactly how you are feeling. Enjoy your baked goodies! I've been putting peaches up for winter...(canning) and also made a delicious peach cobbler earlier today. Much love and best wishes for your hubby...Sue (FNHL-2-3a-6/10)

Hi all...returned from Mayo. My husband's PET scan result was very good and his labs are very good as well. Over 50% response rate and his spleen is normal in size again. It has not been normal since last December! In 3 weeks we talk to the tranplant doctor about the auto transplant. Happy to have made some progress and to see a little light in the tunnel.

My best to all,

Katie
