Just another cancer blog

Thankful . . .

I just realized that it had been over a year between past entries and my last entry. How much can change in just a year! Look at 2020 and the havoc wrought. So much else can change too . . .

I have so much to be thankful for. It is incredible. I had another MRI and the lesions are smaller again. All of my blood work is good . . .better than before when I was on the other medication. Muscle aches and pains are still bothering me and I have lost two thirds of my hair. We won’t know for six months if any of this has been transient or will be more permanent. Most exciting, a blood test is done regularly to check for cancer activity. The results this past test were lower than they have EVER been . . .after chemo, radiation and the first targeted therapy. The graphs shows an almost vertical decine.

So . . .hugs to all of you. This was all such good news. There is so much we can be grateful for . . .the Sunday comic reminded us that, after all, the first Thanksgiving was celebrated after dire hardship. We can always find things we are thankful for.
