Another Thursday another shot of the good stuff for Scotty boy.
Counts were elevated due to the steroids although his monocytes were low which spooked me somewhat but our lovely nurse, Vicky, calmed me down and said all looked good.
I think as the weeks tick by I get more and more nervous. Relapse is often seen early in t-cell (median relapse time is 62 weeks as oppose to about 130 weeks with pre b-cell) but that still leaves the other 50% occurring after 62 weeks. I think I have said this before but the word ‘cured’ isn’t uttered until 10 years remission. 10 years!!!
We got home at a decent time this morning and I spent hours going through all his bloodwork since diagnosis, driving myself crazy over counts from months ago. It was shocking looking back and seeing how many 'abnormal' cells Scott has had over the last 16 months, what they could have implied and how ignorant I was. By the time David got home from work I was hyperventilating and ready for Bedlam.
That’s all for now, apart from …
1. I stopped smoking today ….. ahahahhahahaha … I want to kill someone already and its only been 4 hours!!
2. We are going to cancer camp in Maine!!
3. 13 days until The Cure!!
