Drive By Post...

Many big thanks for all your well-wishes and prayers. I haven't been able to respond because it has been so hectic with daily hospital visits for various tests, but please know that it means so much to us just hearing your support.

I've been knocked down by some nasty flu bug since Thursday and feel like I've been turned inside-out, stomped-on and pull right-side out again. Blah. In any case, my lovely sister-in-law drove three hours (one way!) to take my husband for another several tests and his oncologist visit on Thursday. We have very good news! The mass in my husband's sinus cavity is also lymphoma! We can once again do away with that damn niggle that haunts the back of our brains. My husband's bone marrow and spinal fluid are clear of lymphoma! Yay, baby! He'll be starting his chemo treatment this coming Wednesday. Relief. My husband has agreed to be a part of a chemo study that includes a drug called Rituxan, that works wonders with lymphoma.

Now, I'm about to once again get help from our most dearest, incredible friend, G, whom faithfully makes time to take me grocery shopping every week. Love you G! You're gonna have to carry me this time around!!

SO Glad to read the good news about treatment starting. Hang in there, you guys are coming thru the other side soon.

As the spouse of a lymphoma survivor (5 years in July!), my thoughts are with you both. Hang in there.

Glad to hear that it wasn't as bad as at first feared. Thinking of you.
