Good afternoon, friends!
Karen just reminded me that I should let you all know that I had my six-month follow-up check-up at the end of June, and that there was no sign of any cancer. (I didn't send an update then, because they were concerned about elevated bilirubin levels — but it looks now as if these are due to a completely benign condition called Gilbert's Syndrome — so that's all right!) It'll be another 4½ years before they'll give me the "all clear," but for this particular cancer, the first year is by far the most likely time for any recurrence. So this is really good news![...]
