Last chemo???

Well, a girl can hope. Dr. Rao gave me a gift on Monday, she said as of this one, I have had the full regime of chemo so now she was ordering a PET scan in three weeks to see how things look. If it is clear, I will go on a maintenance treatment for the next two years. Every six months I will go in one day a week for a month and get a dose of Rituxin which is not a chemo drug but an anti-body that will hopefully keep me in remission. The best thing about this drug is that no shots are required afterwards, so I can look forward to days, weeks and months of freedom, if my scan is clear. 

This is my new mantra.

Lets all adopt this, our world would be a better place.

Thank you all for your continued prayers, I'm so blessed to have you at my back.


  1. Oh, Julie, that is wonderful! I've been thinking about you and wondering what the doctor said, that is better than I had hoped!! Now we will just pray for a clear scan and continued good reports and I love your new mantra and the above cartoon...I'm with you!!

  2. I'm catching up on my blog reading - does this mean it will be this coming week for the scan? That sounds great - you looked good last night; it is good to be home and seeing everyone again.....Will be glad for chance to visit this weekend! Loved the cartoon, so true!
