Default Remission!!!

There's a new blog entry added:



REMISSION!!!






It's been quite a journey. That's what I keep thinking. From November of last year until yesterday. But this is the first time I heard the word "remission" from my oncologist. Last week we drew blood to test for my light chain ratio to verify things. Light chains combine with other substances in the blood to form a sticky protein called amyloid, which impairs the function of whichever organ in which it may accumulate and that came up clean. In fact there is barely any sign of Myeloma in my system at all. My creatnine levels in my kidneys came up normal which has been monitored heavily during this entire time since chemotherapy can really take a toll on them. If it's my time to go the side effects of chemo could very well do me in moreso than the cancer itself.

After all you've been through, actually hearing the word "remission" is a huge deal! Congrats for holding on and making it through all of it.

I'm glad to hear you're positive but cautious. It's all too easy to think "I'm cured!" at this point, but keeping vigilant & maintaining will actually improve your chances of staying healthy.

Thanks everyone. You're support means a LOT to me. I've learned a lot from all this, things I'll remember forever. There's nothing more humbling than to go thru chemotherapy and to see a fourteen year old boy going thru it as well and they have a catheter sticking out of their chest. And next to them is a bald, seven year old girl who's getting chemo as well.

Cancer does not discriminate. And it isn't kind. If you're ever looking for a charity to donate to look no further than the American Cancer Society.
