Close But No Cigar

We met with Steve's oncologist on Thursday. We didn't receive the news we were hoping to hear -- however he is very close to remission. One wonders about this process, the chemo almost killed him yet the cancer lives on! Tells you something about the tenacity of those cells. He will continue on maintenance chemo for at least a year and a half. The hope is that these medications will put him into remission. The numbers are heading in the right direction which is also a good sign. A heartfelt thanks to all of you who have stayed in touch and prayed for our family during the past six months, we appreciate you and will let you know when Steve is in full remission.

You just keep the good attitude and fighting those enemy cells because you will win the battle! I am so glad to hear you are going in the right direction and we will be pulling for you in every way to succeed and declare remission! That will be a day to celebrate. Remember to listen to Lynn and keep the faith! You are already a winner in my book! When is our next old fart's lunch? I say let's go to Taggart's again as it was great! Take care Steve.
