Good News, Bad News

I have Good news and Bad news. The Good News first-We met with Dr. Tricot on Friday and found from all the test results that the chemotherapy and my body have been doing what they are supposed to. There is no sign of cancer in the bone marrow and the overall cancer has decreased by 90%!!! After telling the Dr. that I was so frustrated with how slow my recovery from the first tranplant had been, he replied this meant that my body had been working extra hard to kill the cancer (and I thought I had not done a thing for last two months!) I always feel better and more hopeful after meeting with Dr. Tricot. The Bad News is not that bad after such great news. The plan was to begin the next round of treatments on Monday the 6th, however I caught a cold and possible sinus infection over the weekend so everything is postponed til Friday. Plan B is to get over this cold and get healthy enough by Friday to begin chemo then. I am leaving my bags packed and thinking healthy thoughts til then.

Kris I am so happy for your good news! All those prayers have paid off. Bud and I were talking that we pray for three people that have cancer . . . Kris, Kristie and Kristoffer. Go figure. At this point I am hoping I don't know anymore people whose name starts with KRIS....

I hope you get over your cold soon! We love you guys.

Kris, this is wonderful news! You have really worked hard and, obviously, the faith of you and your family has pulled you through to this momentous milestone. I am so glad to see that the results are good and that the treatment is working.

I hope you recover soon from your cold and sinus infection and can resume getting even more improvement in your efforts to 'move the mountain'.

Thinking of you ....
