All five samples have come back CLEAN! No sign at all of any cancer whatsoever. Nothing, nada, zip.
They want to do a followup that may or may not include another painful biopsy deal in about three months. So the end of July and early August is looking busy as that is also when they want to do another full body PET Scan to check on things.
At this point everything has come back indicting she is in remission for the two nasty types of Non Hodgkins Lymphomas she had and no sign of any other new cancer. Still needs to have the echo cardiogram scheduled and done to make sure the chemotherapy has not done any new damage to her heart. And she still has to have the surgery to remove the port out of her chest. But, all things considered, things are looking up for Sandi's health at this point.
This was the best possible news we could have gotten. Sandi's comment was, "I told you so." I still can't quite believe it. I really want to believe but to be told this after all the indications otherwise is pretty amazing.
Because we are back online Sandi was able to update her blog from home today. As always she has a lot of pictures. In this case her blog deal is on items she recently has been making the last couple of weeks. The link to check it out is http://lady-sandra.blogspot.com/2012/05/more-finished-projects2.html
