Vincent, Thanks for the reminder! I had forgotten I wrote this. It’s still on my to do list. I think since May 2 is my diagnosis anniversary date, I’ll start on that day and track things for a year. I’ll ponder this and update you.

And thanks for the note.

Three things I’m thankful for today……..
– surviving 2 bouts of lymphoma (I will not give the disease the honor of capitalizing it’s name.).
– receiving unbelievably awesome medical care from all my providers here at St. Luke’s, Boise, ID.
– having a spouse who is one of the most caring individuals I have ever known.

So if we don’t vibe or truly feel comfortable with the first person we see, I think there is a choice to go see a second opinion. The unfortunate aspect is that insurance does play a role in WHO we get to see first hand. I truly believe that I got so lucky in…

I am 73 years old and in my 3rd year of watchful waiting. It is helpful to me to read that someone is in the 9th year of “watchful waiting”! Given the blood tests I do every four months, I can say that I remain quite healthy, and I feel good.

I think you brought that home so well @bobtalisker. Knowing your body is such an important relationship to build regardless of your health. Thank you for sharing and driving this point home.
