I kept really busy today because my appointment wasn't until 3:30 and I was preparing myself for the worst.

The doctor came in and told me they have a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being not so great and one being excellent and that I am a solid ONE!!! Yahoo!  I have NED!!!! Absolutely no sign of active disease and the mass in my chest has shrunk by about 1/3 - 1/2.  I am so relieved and excited.   I was so thrilled that I left and got in my car and was out of the parking lot before I realized that I forgot to get my PICC line taken out.  LOL  I wheeled back around and no one had even had time to grab my parking spot which still had time left on it.  Next step, follow up blood work in a couple of months.

It is always a delight when people share good news here.  I did the same thing once with a pic, but got all the way home (about a 20 mile drive). I called the clinic, and they said if I wrapped it carefully and kept it dry, I could come back the next day, which I did. 

Blessings,

max

Aaron,

I remember the weeks before your first infusion like it was yesterday morning. Your case was so very similiar to my own.  I am more happy than I can say.

PS: Say hi to Kolbe in the picture, our 70 pound mixed breed. He seems to have some pointer in him (and about 20 other things).

Good Luck Mark. It's a process.

Try to keep positive thoughts along the way and take it a day at a time.

 

Keep distracted like I did.
