    Remission

    Celebration

    Finished chemo in Aug., had almost clear scans at that point, and followed up with basically clear scans in Nov. One little spot with "low probability of malignancy." I'm finally feeling like myself again physically, and I'm thanking God for every day, learning to live in the present!
