I just received an email from my doctor at UCLA, here's an excerpt:
"There is no evidence of tumor recurrence/progression. So, we
have no new recommendations at this time, other than to get a follow-up
MRI scan in 6 months."
WOOT WOOT! Heck yes!! You guys, we're doing it!!!!!! We have dealt with recurrence before, but we came back stronger, better informed, more diligent, and right now we're enjoying the payoff. This lifestyle is a lot of work, but damn if it isn't worth every ounce of effort!
Thank you for the continued support, I am incredibly grateful for all of the help along the way! This feels like a huge step toward my #1 goal in life, which is to get the opportunity to grow old, and wrinkled, and grey. That's all I want in life is to get to ride that journey. And these results move me closer!
I still can't believe this is happening. A six month window between MRIs is a very big deal. It's by far the widest spread between scans that I've ever been allowed to do.
Sometimes it's too much to think that I'm going to be okay, that I could beat this tumor stuff. I'm often only able to "hope" for things. I'm never confident because I feel it's important to acknowledge that people are often at the mercy of fate, or timing, or luck, or God. Whatever you want to call it, in this moment, it has fallen on our side, and I'm grateful to be basking in the glow of good fortune. I've been on both sides, and my fate will no doubt oscillate throughout my life. I am just so grateful, I can't even put it into words. We work so hard, my whole family, and it feels wonderful to get great results. You guys, we're doing it!!!!! YESSS!!
