D-Day

          D-Day, the 6th of June, 2002.

          Eight months ago, Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma nearly killed me.  Today, I got the word from my doctor that the Lymphoma is in REMISSION.  WOW!!!  Now that's great news!

          He reminded me that "remission" does not mean "cure", and I told him that I'm well aware of the implications, but that it's a great word anyway and I'm really glad to hear it!

          My next NHL checkup isn't for 2 months, on August 1st.  Between now and then, I'm still on the Warfarin (Coumadin) for the blood clot in my leg and will need a blood draw every week to monitor it.  But that should be clear as well in 2 months.  With a little luck on my side, all I'll have to do after that is get a checkup every few months, and hope the NHL doesn't rear it's ugly head for a loooooooooooooooong time!

         There's not a lot more I can say right now.  Thanks to all of you for your support and comforting thoughts and messages over these past months.  Your words of encouragement have meant a lot to me, and still do.  I couldn't have done it without you.

          Well, back to my cartooning... 

          Next: Checkup
