Officially Three Years Since My Last Bone Marrow Transplant—TODAY!

              Crazy, huh? Seems like another lifetime ago in many ways and yet the intensity of my gratitude today is unchanged, if not stronger, than it was then for our miracle and all those that helped make it happen. Although we each must be the ones who walk the […]

Celebrating a life…

I just found out that a young woman who was diagnosed with the same rare type of cancer I had—Large Cell Cervical Neuroendocrine Cancer—died today…one day before her 34th birthday. Her’s was caught much earlier than mine yet her doctors didn’t know about the cutting-edge treatment I had and by the time I found her, […]

And the winner is…

…ME! (Yippie!!!) Hi Everyone! It’s official…ALL GOOD! My scan was beautifully clean and wonderfully “unremarkable”. I know it’s what we all expected, but I just never get tired of hearing it. :) You know my sister asked me, “Alyss, were you worried about this one??” And I told her “No, but it’s weird. I know […]

Scan Results

Sorry this has taken so long.  I promise I haven’t been holding out for a dramatic pause on purpose!  We’ve gotten a bit pampered by getting my results super fast in the past and this time was no different but there was a small little “glitch” in the report that came back yesterday that I […]

Next Scan MONDAY, Update and Photos!

Happy Father’s Day weekend and a big hello from steamy Atlanta!  I have lots to catch you up on but the reason for this update is a more “time sensitive” one.  It’s hard to believe, but my next scan is Monday!  This one kind of snuck up on me (a good sign, I think) because […]

Two Year Scan Results: God’s just showing off now! :)

Not only was the scan good, it was clean as a whistle!  Yippie!!!!!!!  When you read the radiology reports the radiologists use “unremarkable” as verbage for “normal”, “So normal it’s boring” and “Got anything else more challenging??”  When I heard the part today about the abdomen (the area of greatest interest because of the liver) […]
