That whole cancer thing

I mean it does say something in the title of the blog, right?

The documented course of treatment for Stage 2 Hodgkins is to maintain regular scans for several years after remission begins.  Thanks to Julia being pregnant she was able to avoid a round of scans.  They caught up to us though and she endured another round of delicious barium and radioactive imaging.

We were very pleased to see that the images from this recent scan and the previous scan, now a year old, look identical.  Which means we get to continue saying that the cancer is in remission and we can continue on our way.

Happy dance.

Thanks for following along everyone.

  3. Congrats on your recent scans! I found your blog through a pin on pinterest. I am just entering remission from a battle with ovarian cancer. It helps so much to read other people's stories- especially in the hard times. Thanks for writing! ~Jyndia
