Hi John,
Just wanted to say "Good luck" and "YIPPEE"...tomorrow will be your last Rituxan infusion!!! I'll be on the river fishing all day tomorrow, so I wanted to be sure and let you know how happy I am for you. Oct-Dec-Feb and then I will be done also!!! Man...the time has flown by...I remember the fall of 2010 and we were barely starting our battle. Anyways...hope all goes smoothe tomorrow and you can celebrate the victory sometime this weekend. You will be droopy tomorrow, but maybe by Sunday you can kick your heels up a bit and do something fun! I'll try to catch a "BIG" King Salmon in your honor! :)
Love ya...Sue...P.S. Tell Joyce "Hi" for me...bet she's happy also!

So glad John you have had your last rituxin. Moffin in Tampa told me with rituxin I had a 80% chance of not getting it back for 7-9 years. Rituxin is a good medicine. Take care.

Joanie,
That sounds great to me. Hopefully they will have a cure for this stuff by then. It seems there are strides being made everyday with it in one way or the other. I just got something on the computer from LRF which says they look at Lymphoma as more of a chronic disease anymore. Take care. John

Hi John,

Wow, how great is this??? You're done. I pray that this will keep you out of trouble (the NHL kind!) for many, many years. Long enough that a cure comes along. I believe that is very possible!

I have my last 2 day infusions Oct 2 and 3rd. Then I start maintenance Ofatumumab for two years.

May we all find Remission and then the big Cure!

Hugs and best wishes,
Donna
