All Clear!!

John had his PET scan last week to check for Lymphoma.  He gets them every 3 months now because he had the kind of cancer that likes to keep coming back.   Last summer, he had a stem cell transplant to try to kill the cancer once and for all.  March is 6 months since his release from the hospital and his PET scan is showing  NO SIGNS OF CANCER!!!!  Woo Hoo!!!  Cause for celebration!!!!!

For those of you who may be new to my blog, you can read about John's 2+ year battle with Lymphoma, and how he came back from Stage 4 cancer. You can read a fairly complete story here.

This is such great news!  John's never gone 6 months without the Lymphoma showing up!!  I'm really starting to believe that maybe, just maybe the cancer is gone for good!!!  Another PET scan is scheduled for June 2010.  I'm not sure how long they'll watch him every 3 months or when they'll start lengthening the time between scans.  All I know is I'm as happy as a pig in shit right now!
