    Do you ever look around at some of the people you know and think that as bad off as we might be, there are still others that are worse?

      When I was in active treatment, I saw a man in Walmart who had lost his arm below the elbow (actually a blessing because he still has his elbow to clutch things with), and there he was holding his phone with his elbow and texting with his other hand. And I felt so blessed that day.

      Every visit to my cancer center makes me grateful because I see so many much worse than me.

      There is no such thing as "usual," I don't think. I've got friends with lung cancer who have been getting chemo infusions for years. :( I have others who haven't gotten but a few treatments.

      I am in for about 6 months so far. I expect to be in for a year or so, depending on results, of course.

      Hmmmm...well, it was two months involving 5 drugs followed by two months involving 3 additional drugs followed by immediate relapse which lead to a clinical trial drug and 64 twenty-eight day cycles of that, followed by a second relapse which lead to 2-3 cycles in a clinical trial followed by 2-3 cycles of two other drugs followed by three cycles of a three drug experimental combo, followed by a stem cell transplant. For seven years I was in constant treatment. Post-transplant, it is now almost four years in constant treatment for Graft-versus-Host-Disease.

      What is it like to be out of treatment??? :-D
