Once again Dr. Sheila is smiling when she comes into the examining room. I feel good. My test results are good. Neutrophils are normal (3.6). I have the option of seeing Dr. Sheila one last time for a routine check at two years and I take it. After that I will be checked by my family doctor. However, should anything seem amiss either with my test results or how I feel I will be in to see Dr. Sheila immediately.
Once again there is a surprisingly emotional release of stress for both Cass and I. For some reason the edge of this anxiety does not seem to get dull with time. Not yet anyway.
We treat ourselves to lunch at Zambri’s and dinner at Brasserie L’Ecole. The next routine check will be in November. We have our fingers crossed in hopes that November will bring us two years of remission.
