Well...FB friends know that yesterday was my 36th Wedding Anniversary. Jill and I have had a great life. We knew each other in high school and went to the same college - where we became good friends. It's a great thing to be married to your best friend.
She has had her own serious health issues. We have been lucky that we have taken turns being in tough shape. I was scheduled to see Dr E (my oncologist) today and she told me to tell him that it isn't "my turn" right now. I did tell him that and he delivered great news. I continue to be in remission!!
He feels that I might expect to have a good run of time coming. Whenever my current remission ends (hopefully, quite a while from now), I will go on the NIH test chemo which is a "specialty" chemo specifically targeted for a somewhat rare gene which I have. He said that the NIH has had extremely good success with this drug; and, it apparently hasn't been causing side effects. He thinks it is possible that I may have a couple years before it will be necessary to figure out a next treatment.
Nothing is ever guaranteed when it comes to cancer. But, it sure is good to think that I may be feeling OK for a while.
