I’M IN COMPLETE REMISSION!!!!
I am over the moon! My doctor called me today to let me know that the minimal residual disease (MRD) test came back sooner than expected and I am still MRD negative. This is such good news and means that I can continue on with maintenance treatment as hoped.
What is just as good is that he’s giving me TWO weeks off before we regroup to start maintenance. I am so pumped to have this time off of chemo and steroids where I will feel like myself for a bit. Time to build up my energy and stamina before this next round of treatment.
Maintenance should be more tolerable. Even though I’ll be getting all of the same medications, it will be at lower doses. This gives me hope for getting back to work and feeling a sense normalcy.
To celebrate I ordered take out from my favorite restaurant in Winnipeg, The Grove. I got a pineapple bacon pizza and a poutine as well as a hard cider. I haven’t had a drink in over a year and since I’m off chemo for a couple weeks I decided to celebrate!
Cheers to good health and finding happiness where you can!
