We got good news today. We are officially half way through treatments! Denise had her CAT scan imaging last Monday on our "off" week so we had to wait until today to get the results. That has made for a VERY long week. As per our normal procedures, we got to the Clinic early and made our way up to the 8th floor. We got called back and she got her vitals checked. Her blood pressure is back to normal as well! Getting off those extra meds this past week has made a world of difference. She's been much more active and doesn't get as tired as easily. Such a good thing to have her "back". Just seemed like she was in a fog when she was on all those meds. We had to wait for a little bit for Doctor M to come into the room. He came in, sat down, looked right at her and said, "Your scans were perfect". I was in tears. She was in shock. I think we both spent the past week waiting to hear the worst and we got exactly what we had hoped and prayed for. So the plan for now is to complete three more cycles. Two weeks of chemo, week off, repeat. That means that our last treatment should be on our wedding/first date anniversary. I think we also know, but won't admit at least now, that we know there is still a lot of road ahead and will probably have some bumps along the way. But at least for now, there is light at the end of the tunnel. I cannot wait for that last day to get here.
I'll keep updating the site along the way. Thanks to all of you who follow along and for your positive thoughts/prayers/positive light and energy/karma/encouraging words/most importantly LOVE. That has meant the most to us through this.
Now if I can wrangle the remote control away from her as she's sleeping, I can change the channel from Friends. Ack.
