"Y" as in YEA!!! for Alphabe-Thursday

"Y" as in YEA for this week's Alphabe-Thursday!


Why YEA?

Because I'm jumping up and down and saying, "YEA!"
Some of you already know that my son had a stem cell transplant almost three years ago.

He's been cancer free ever since, but this past summer his PET scan lit up.  That can be an indication that the cancer has returned.  He ended up having a needle biopsy that was negative, but they said the needle doesn't get much and could have missed it.  So, he had a surgical biopsy and that also came back negative.  Still, it could have meant they didn't get enough.  Then he had a spinal tap that was also negative.  So, we were down to waiting until the next PET scan to see if the spot got larger.  It didn't.  If it was the Lymphoma returning it would have gotten larger.  There's just a small spot now.

Other things can cause the scan to light up, but once there's been cancer it's a big worry.  Needless to say, we're very relieved.  He had been told that reaching three years cancer free would be very good.   I guess kind of a landmark.   On December 21st it will be three years.

After a stress filled summer we're saying YEA!

Now head over to Jenny's blog...Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent" for a list of this week's participants.

Thanks for visiting...

  1. YEA !!!
    I'll say a yea for your son also !! That is good news for sure.
    My PET scan is for cardiological purposes. During my last one my BP and heart rate dropped way down with numbers in the 30's.
    Has that ever happened to your son?
    Stay dry, I think this weekend's storm will north. The bikers are in Galveston, filling it up. We have moved down from Montgomery to Katy, a few blocks from our daughter and granddaughter and SIL. Still have some unpacked boxes.
