Exhale…for now

Whew. What a stressful day, waiting to hear what is next.  Turned out to be what we had hoped for.

I can begin treatment next Wednesday with a drug called Rituxan, and then WAIT to see if Chemo will be needed later.  So I pray that I respond well to this medicine (which has risks of its own , but not quite as toxic as chemo would be).

The first infusion is 5 hours long….so a good book, and nice music will be packed in my Hobo bag. (AND snacks!)

We feel relieved. I feel undeserving, but so thankful.  Thank you all for prayers and your kind thoughts. It is so appreciated!!
