Great news!

CSN is getting an upgrade. All of your posts will still be here, but the website will have a new look, new features and be mobile-friendly. To prepare for the changes, the site will be down briefly at the end November. We’ll continue to provide updates as we get closer.

Wondering how it went and if you heard what you'd been hoping to hear.  Fingers crossed!

Well Doc said my cell counts are on the rebound and going back up, told her about the PET scan, she said that she wants to wait for a bit and have me do labs again in 8 weeks, and she said that as far as shes concerned i am in remission. Of course i still feel apprehensive, but that will never totally go away, so shes ordered a bone density test and hip x rays, my left hip where i had the bone biopsies has been really pianful over the last 2 months, she said that its possible the steriods i had to take have caused some damage, so will see what the scan and x rays says and will post more soon.

Glad to hear the counts are going in the right direction. My boss has been in remssion 8-9 years now, yet if any of her Dr.s even hints at cancer she starts to worry. Hopefully all tests and reports will be good.

That is wonerful news Chris.  I totally understand why you are apprehensive, I think some of that is to prepare yourself for the worse so you don't get too let down.  You are the expert in that and you have been so brave and encouraging to all of us.  My wish is for a very full and happy summer, so hoping you can move ahead.
