|Dad took this picture. I asked him to send me one of his sunset pictures because I felt like the sun is setting on this disease! I love this photo. Thanks dad!|
Yep, that's right folks. Those pesky little tumors are gone!!! It is the most we could have asked for today. And I am ecstatic!! I made a scene in the radiology department, but the people there are like family and just helped me right along with making it...crying and hugs and joy and laughter and YES!!! Michael was there with me to hear the good news. It was awesome. It IS awesome!! So nice to get good news after all the bad news we've heard.
So now we move on to the process for the stem cell transplant. I am not sure what that will be exactly yet. I'll keep you posted, you know I will!!!
I couldn't have done this without you all. Truly. You are my strength. You are my encouragement. You lift me up and keep me going. I am incredibly grateful for you...every cell of my body says so.
Much love and sweet dreams!!!
p.s. edit for Friday morning...Dr. Hamrick e-mailed me the final report from the radiologist this morning and all over it it reads COMPLETE REMISSION!!!! yipppppeee!!! And, all other organs look good, my lungs look BETTER. My bones are showing some wear from the chemo, increased metabolic activity, meaning they are working hard to get those blood cells up. Go little bones!!! I'll feed you all the good stuff to repay you...
|He also sent me this one...said it was one of his favorites. He took this of Curtis and me soaking in the sunset December, 2004. I love it too.|
