Starting 2015 NED

10425491_10205025616832777_3877645765900042513_nExhausted, but we made it to the airport safely and on time! And…..with GREAT NEWS!

I remain cautiously NED, but NED!!!! What.A.Relief! I cannot begin to explain.

Dr. Li was running 45 minutes behind which caused us to be behind with Dr. Lang. After we finished with both of them, I sent a last ditch effort to Dr. Ravi to see if he was available. Fortunately, he was! We met him in his academic office, and we all hugged with great relief and celebrated the moment! We have been blessed with the most amazing medical team with the most amazing expertise at their disposal. God is good, always. 2015 is shaping up to be a very blessed year.

The plan is to continue on chemo for the short term. Dr. Ravi said 4 months is the limit he’ll go with me on Temodar. He has had patients, especially younger ones, develop leukemia as a secondary malignancy. In case you didn’t guess, we desperately want to try and avoid that situation. 😉

We will be on our way home shortly, and we couldn’t be in better spirits. Thank you God for these life lessons, and getting us this far. Thank you, all of you, for keeping us so close to your hearts.

For those that can make it out to the wine fundraiser this Saturday for our family, we cannot wait to hug all of you, thank you in person, and raise a glass with you to celebrate this amazing year!

We love you.
