All Quiet on the Health Front

5/31/16 – It’s been about a month since my last post and not much has changed for me. My blood counts continue to be great… one may even say that they are normal. As far as it goes with my most recent challenges, we will revisit my MDS in September when I will have another bone marrow biopsy. Also, I will be scanned in August to hopefully see that I am still in remission with MCL.

In the spirit of “life goes on”… today I received a number of vaccinations - Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis as part of the DTap vaccine. In addition I received Hib (Haemophilus influenza type b) Hepatitis B, Polio, and Pneumococcal Disease. Vaccination wise I am now on par with a 1 ½ year old.
On the exciting side of things, I have an appointment with Dr. Goy on June 9th to discuss starting my PD-1 (Opdivo) treatments. For someone with lymphoma this is really pretty cutting edge stuff. The hope that comes with this is longevity… and I am all for it.
Other than that all has been quiet on the health front… and I must confess that living a quiet, boring, normal life is a very good thing.  
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.Romans 8:28
More to come…
