Great news on all fronts

soft


Dennis finally got all his results back from the cardiologist - well all, save one, and the news is that there's no blockages or weird growths.  His blood flow rate is weaker than it should be but for now they are upping his medication and have approved him to start back exercising once the final result is in.  He's supposed to start the exercise back up slowly then follow up with the cardiologist in 6 months.  Best news we could have hoped for.  Hopefully, the higher dose of medication will control the heart rate a little better.


I saw the oncologist this afternoon and my abdominal/pelvic CT scan looks good.  My bloodwork is also good, the liver enzymes are still high but they are the lowest they've been in 3 years, so hopefully that trend will continue.  I will be having a chest CT tomorrow to verify that all looks good there, then I can schedule the removal of the port and stay away from the oncologist for 6 months.  Remission is grand!


Thanks to everyone - you are my lifeline more often than you realize!
