Can I Get a Whoop Whoop!

Today was the day. The day we got results from all the husband's tests.  The day we were so anxious to arrive and also wished would never be. Crazy huh? Want to know but you don't. I think the 10 minute wait in the exam room was the longest EVER!  Dr D and Dawn came in with a bunch of paperwork. Dr D asked how the husband was feeling after their bone marrow torture session. Then he got to it. Said he had some good news for us. He went over the results of each test and all lab work. Everything returned NORMAL! There were no signs of cancer anywhere else. He and Dawn said it was nice to give good news as it doesn't happen often for them.

Dr D advised us to remain cautious though. As this type of cancer tends to creep up in other bones. As well, myeloma can be "patchy" in bone marrow, not appearing in portion they tested but being in another area of marrow. So the husband will continue with follow up labs/tests to keep an eye out for anything suspicious. Appointment made for March for follow up.

Monday, we will get the appointment to meet back with Dr. Nguyen, the radiation oncologist, to get the husband's radiation started. They will zap his tumor into submission. :) I told the husband I'd ask Dr. Nguyen if it would help to zap the husband with the hotshot between treatments for added effectiveness. Hehe

We want to thank everyone for their prayers and positive vibes. We are blessed.


Now, tomorrow we have a bull competing in Guthrie, OK. Go Crazy M Buckers!

I've been sitting for over 20 years with the "possibility" of multiple myeloma. Know what a terror it is.

Prayers for easy time with the treatment. AND, gold statue (?), gold buckle (?) ... what do they give for winning bull stuff??
