CT-Scan Clear

I had my one year CT-Scan last Sunday and the results were out today- I'm still NED in what the onc called completely clear. However my Plateletts and White Blood cells are still in the low range of safe. ONC said he's not surprised a year just isn't enough to recover from all the patient gets put through. I know my fight is not over. Still I felt guilty walking through the hospital lobby with my good news past so many faces I didn't know. Some of them just starting the fight; some continuing the treatments; and remembering my radiation buddy who lost his battle not so many months ago.

    I just went in for 2 year bloodwork, and my onc said that my counts were just now back to normal. She says it takes this long for that to happen. So happy to hear your good news!

    And just for the record....

    YOU are what newbies NEED to see walking down the halls!!! People need to see that there ARE SURVIVORS! I don't care if it is surviving a season, surviving a test, or surviving a year....YOU ARE A SURVIVOR!!! (can you hear me now?!?!? lol) If every survivor just goes on with life, never looking back, never encouraging others, than what was the lesson learned? We all benefit from each other regardless of where we are on the journey. For each person lost in the battle, there are SO many who can benefit from your fight.

    Keep up the great progress!!!!
