John's Cancer Update

Last week, John had his 3 month PET scan to check to see if his cancer (Lymphoma) is still in remission or if it was rearing it's ugly head again.


Today he had his appointment with Dr. Nasta to get the results.


She walked in the examining room, stopped in her tracks, gave a HUGE grin and said, "You are better than ever!!"


And I gave a big sigh of relief!


Dr. Nasta (a wonderfully brilliant hematology oncologist) said John's numbers are better than ever!  


And she doesn't want to see him for 6 months!!






We celebrated by having lunch at the Potbelly Sandwich Shop that's attached to The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.


Then we went home and took a 2 1/2 hour nap!
