We met with Dr Kota last night  to hear the results of mikes latest PET/CT. You may know already (I hope you don’t ) that these scans use radioactive material ,that is injected into your body to find disease on the cellular level.

I  have had somewhat of a writers block - or probably just a blocking of memories and emotions I haven’t wanted to feel or write about lately as we approach the 2 year mark of Mike’s diagnosis.

But I believe these are simple yet powerful

Some of you may have heard already, but I have been fighting pneumonia for the past three weeks. Through all the scans and test for pneumonia Dr. Kota found a small lesion in my tissue on my upper leg. It is what everyone fears about leukemia after having a bone marrow transplant.  We started new chemo's and radiation to...
