Day 5 of Bonus Time

It's Monday, I wrapped up a four day weekend celebrating my two year anniversary (aka cancerversary) of my diagnosis.  I had a few people say to me "congratulations" but then they'd all follow up with the question if saying congratulations is really appropriate. It is cancer we're talking about. But I tell them that yes, congratulations is absolutely appropriate. As I've said before, I'm going to continue fighting this for decades to come.  But, a part of me does feel like I crossed a major milestone. I made it past two years.  That is definitely worthy of congratulations.  Going forward I still need to figure out what is next. But that's another story.

Thursday I am back to chemo. I did basic labs on Saturday and my white and red blood counts are excellent, both floating around normal range. Creatinin is at 3.8, hovering around what it has been for a few months. Any day now, it'll drop some more.
