Free and Clear...still.

Hello all! I got the good word today that I'm still in remission! Woo hoo! Nothing too significant has changed since the last scan and THAT'S GREAT!! My blood counts are in normal range (although still low normal, but normal) so that means my bone marrow has been restored. WOO HOO. I am so happy with the good news.

Those scans sure show everything though...quite funny (yet embarrassing) when it says there is stool in your colon. Whooppss. Well, that's not my fault, I couldn't have my morning coffee that morning! Ha. I also have a cyst in my sinus (that was there before) and a small nodule in my lung (which was there before as well). Both are stable and nothing to be worried about. What matters is there are no swollen lymph nodes. Yippee skippy. Happy Dance for everyone!!

They gave me the green light to get my port taken out too. I will be going back for another scan/meeting the end of April but at this time they said, "take it out!" Ha. So I'll be calling to schedule that soon although I hope and pray it's not the kiss of death...

Both Scott and Dr. Nabong LOVED my hair growth...even Dr. Nabong asked, "is that real hair?!" Hahaha. I think he's just jealous that my hair is now longer than his. He's a funny one.

Next Friday, the 4th will my ONE YEAR anniversary of the day I was diagnosed. I will never ever forget that day. I really can't believe it's been a whole year. Time sure does fly. So far 2011 is off to a great start and it will continue to get better and better.

So that my friends is the latest. My chemo angel buddy has completed her chemo program so that was good news as well. Hopefully this cancer stuff has gotten the message to stop messing with people I know!!

I hope everyone is doing as good as I am! I'll ding back in next week! Have a good one!

Love, Erin
