Walkin' Along in the (Re)mission in the Sun

We just assume that it goes:
- AML - oh no!
- Induction chemo - ugh, but ok...
- Remission - yay
- Consolidation chemo - no biggie
- Stem-cell marrow transplant - it's tough but it's the only way
Well, that 3rd step -- Remission -- is crucial. Without it, you have to repeat step 2 (like I had to do the first time around -- see December 2010 blog entries for the gory details)
So this is what I heard from Dr. Damon today. BIG LETTERS INTENTIONAL!
Great news – you are in complete (MRD negative) remission by examination under the microscope and by a sensitive test called flow cytometry (still await your chromosome tests.) Monday’s CBC looked great. I’ll reach out to Marin re consolidation.
So we're onto step 4 which should be simple out-patient chemo at Marin Cancer Care here and there leading up to December transplant.
In the meantime, the remodel continues, Floyd's got a double-header this Saturday, I'm going to TXR Sunday afternoon (final show?), and Phish Halloween webcasts-a-plenty this weekend.
And the sun is out!
