Hello to all!!

Sorry to have been "away" for so long. I have checked in often and try to keep up with all of the posts. I guess I've just been busy and the time just seems to fly by. I do think of each of you often. Otherwise all is OK here(I hope). I will return to Mayo on July 27TH so they can let me know how I am then. Take care everyone and hang in there. Mary

    Hey to my Friend..
    How are you and how is the Rituxan going? Gosh I have missed everyone and you too. Like I mentioned I have been lurking in the background but sometimes just no time to post. No worries here yet John but am getting nervous to go back. It will be the longest I have gone without a checkup....6 months and I have a hard time trusting the whole thing. Probably normal. Take good care. Mary

    Hi Joanie
    Good to hear from you. You are doing OK? Between working and helping my Daughter with her twins I find myself with not a lot of time. Seems like I still need extra sleep so I make sure to figure that in also. Lol

    Doing Okay
    Mary,
    I am doing great,at least I think I am anyway. I go back in Sept. for my next scan. I hope its still good. I think it is normal to start feeling a little nervous the closer it gets to exam time. I know it did for me the first exam after Chemo. John

    Hi Mary, Yes I am doing fine. Can't spell or type but otherwise fine. The twins must be growing daily. Going on vacation to Maine next week. We're looking forward to some cool weather. Florida is warm now but I'm not complaining.

    Good to hear from you!
    Hi Mary,
    It's good to hear from you. I'm doing fine also and have no complaints. Next Rituxan infusion is Aug 22, so that will allow us to go on vacation before time to go in again. Planning 2 weeks down on the river starting July 23rd and then back home on Aug 6th. We are totally enjoying Lizzy and if you get a moment I've put new pictures on my expression page. You take care Mary and enjoy your summer. Love ya...Sue

    Glad to hear from you
    Mary,

    So glad to hear from you. Frankly, I was starting to worry, you hadn't posted for so long. Hmmm... than neither have I. Like you, check in and see how everyone's doing. Was supposed to have a petscan July 12, but I have bronchial pneumonia right now and had to reschedule to July 25. I will miss you by two days. We will both have excellent reports. You have done amazingly well, going back to work full time and taking care of your family, helping out with the twins. You'd have to be pretty healthy to do all that. I'm still very tired and have a lot of aches and pains, but I'm still thankful for each day.

    Hope you will let us know how you check up goes. Enjoy the summer!

    Hi again
    Dear Mary,

    Thank you for asking about me. So far I am doing very well. My oncologist informed me I am in remission as of Jan 2011. If you don't mind me saying, I am just scared the NHL will
    return. I have an appointment in Sept 2011 with the oncologist in Sept 2011.

    I do try and stay positive, but it's hard. I really feel good with lots of energy. My last blood work came out great. But, my Immunoglobulin numbers were a bit low.

    lgG 543 low normal 700-1600
    lgM 38 low normal 40-230
    lgA 224 normal normal 70-400

    I don't know what I would do without all of you. My blessings to you and all. Love Maggie
