It feels odd for me posting good news. The doctor said that the radiologists report shows one node with minor cancer activity. My doctor is qualitified to read PET and CT scans so he took a look at them too. He said the activity is minor and significantly less than the last PET scan. He feels that "it is on it's way out" (the PET scan was done only 10 days after last chemo). So he's declaring me "clean". He already talked to the BMT doctor and they arranging it so I can get into the stem cell transplant before Thanksgiving. He doesn't want to wait due to the aggressiveness of the DLBCL. (and I 100% agree with him!!!)
So now the cancer just needs to behave for the next ~17 days...completely unaware that it is the beginning of the end for itself.
Obviously, I'll continue to post but I don't think I say "thank you" to you guys enough...so THANK YOU!
Jim...I know you have scans/results next week...so "May the Scan be with you!" (and to anyone else waiting on results).
Faith, family, friends, positive attitude, prayer...and a ton of toxic drugs will do wonders for a guy!
My plan is to live forever! So far; so good!
Talk to y'all soon.
