The results are in...

After several extra days of not hearing back from the doctor (ack! so stressful!), I finally got word that my scan came back negative and I'm now deemed in "complete remission." Can you believe it?!?!

This is just the best outcome one can hope for with this type of aggressive Lymphoma and after such a grueling journey. I was also able to get my picc line removed, so now my arm is healing up after having that sucker in me forever. Without any restrictions like the picc, I'm ready to gain back my strength and then some.

Oh! And the other big news of the last few days is that my eyebrows, eyelashes and hair are all starting to grow back! My head is budding the softest duck fuzz -- it's exciting times! I assume it'll grow back the same color and texture, but who knows!? 

Thanks to all of you for reading my posts and sending your strength and love my way through these past six months. It has meant so much to me to know that you are all out there rooting for me.
