We Walk

On October 13th, Ti and I will be participating in the Light the Night walk, in support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. In case anyone would like to sponsor us, or even walk with us, here is the link to our team page: It is a good cause, near and dear to our hearts. And we get balloons! Go Sox!

And. . . the winner is. . .

NED. No disease at all. All clean.


Apparently my swollen nodes are salivary glands - not lymph nodes. Weeks of freaking out over an infection.

Anyway, resume whatever you were doing.

Twas the night before 2.5 year scan

I think. I'm not sure where I am right now. I'm between being completely done with this part of my life, and being relapsed. For almost 6 - 7 weeks I've had two very swollen glands underneath my jaw, about the size of walnuts. Of course, to the normal, non-cancer surviving person, it's just the lingering effects of an infection. To me, and to probably anyone else that experienced the hell my wife and I went through in 07 - 09, it's a sign of panic. I go through all the treatment, the chemo, more chemo, SCT, rads, recovery, restarting to live my life as a once-again "normal" person, to have the visitor I never wanted in the first place to return?

Well, it may not be the case, I just may be paranoid. But we'll find out in the morning. I'm not sure of the stats of possible relapse at this point; I'm not even sure there are stats. (there are - it's just getting late, and I've had a few glasses of wine so I can sleep)

Tomorrow brings another day. We'll just have to wait and see what else it brings.

Maybe good news?
