Come Back Next Week!

Yup - as long as Eric keeps feeling good, it's a whole week until we have to head back for another appointment at the hospital. Having been in or driving to the hospital most days this year, this break is truly appreciated. Not the fact that we don't have to get there, but the fact that Eric is well enough and stable enough to be away from the place for that long.

His blood counts have stablized and are on their way up - the graft may be weak, but it's there and sticking. The scan did not yield any new results - we'll just continue to watch those nodes to see if they change. Funny how that is now GOOD NEWS. At one time we would be devastated to have unanswered questions. Now we just enjoy today and the fact that no news is really good news. There is still a long way to go and we're certainly not out of the woods.

But after a few long, very stressful weeks, the relief is sweet.

Human nature is amazing isn't it? The ability to constantly change the paramaters of 'normality'!! And the ability to cope with pretty much ANYTHING!

Enjoy this next week without seeing inside the hospital - I bet you get withdrawal symptoms!! ;0)

Just great to hear this positive news.........Vx
