5-5-11 Thursday  + 6 months

Status:  Feeling good.

Events: Wanted you to hear the good news first.  Preliminary look at bone marrow shows no leukemia!  My oncologist emailed me and said, “YEAH.”  Great to have him as a cheerleader.  Still await molecular and chromosomal reports.  They’ll look for any of my DNA that is left (don’t want to see any) and markers of my particular mutation (don’t want to see any of them either).

Comments: Really am feeling much better.  Everyone has said it just takes time – and I have plenty of that.

  I wish everyone a Happy Mothers Day.  As the old proverb goes, “God couldn’t be everywhere, so he created Moms.”
