For Those Of You Keeping Score At Home

I saw Dr. Miller & Kate today. Eight months post transplant, there is no sign of myeloma. I am considered in complete remission.

There is every indication that I should cruise easily to the eighteen month mark and beyond.

But you know that I only look at the short term. So we are just counting on the 18 months.

I am ten weeks out from the one year anniversary of the transplant. The months between the one year anniversary and the eighteen month mark should be mint! And they coincide with the #WarOf1812 stuff.

Sweet!

Sure, I can't get all my drugs. Sure, I have to fight the insurance company. Sure, the meds mess me up sometimes. Sure, I sleep 12 to 15 hours most days.

But still.......SWEET! LOL!

Looking at the short term works in the short term, but keep extending it by each day that passes.

My "short term" was five years -- from 2002.

Heh...

NICE! Keep up the good work and results.
I am almost 3 and a half yrs out from my bladder removal and reconstruction which with associated crap took up a total of 12 surgeries. Thankfully, I'm coming up on 2 yrs since my last surgery and hoping to keep it that way.
Oh, and no sign of the beast in all 3.5 year
