GOOD NEWS- Still in complete remission!

Just leaving Iowa City after meeting with my doctor about all the tests they did on Tuesday.  Ultrasound, bone marrow biopsy, full body CT scan and bloodwork.  He told me the results couldn't be better.  Still in complete remission with no cancerous cells showing on my bone marrow biopsy.  YEAH!

Starting to work around 30 hours a week now, really enjoying engaging my brain for a change.  Work has provided me a place away from most other workers, which I need for the next 2 years on this maintenance chemo.  20 % of people that have this done, loose there life during this 2 years.  By catching something that our bodies don't have immune systems to fight with.   I still see people, but I can deal with it to minimize my chances of catching something.

All of this happened in 11 months time.  I found out April 29th, 2016 and went back to work on April 10th, after 2 stem cell transplants.  Pretty amazing how fast they treated me.

I wouldn't have made it through all of this with the encouragement and support from many of you.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Have a great weekend!

Debbie
