Some Good News
They are nevertheless going to run me through a PET scan next week to be sure nothing was missed.
My doctor was grinning and she gave the "go" for an appointment with a plastic surgeon for breast reconstruction.
Next appointment is in 6 months. If I take Andrew Griffith at his word in his excellent book, Lymphoma Journey, it is a very good sign that the time between check-ups is growing a bit longer (6 months instead of four).
I still have medicine to take, side-effects to manage (the chemo is rough stuff and it takes awhile to bounce back) and, of course, the full scan next week.
But this is a bright spot in a landscape that has been pretty bleak over the past year or so. I would say that my mood today is "cautiously optimistic."
Time to go walk the garden.
