      MTS CONGRATULATIONS! Love to hear this news. I was just remembering last year at this time my son was insisting he was going to a Halloween party (while in the middle of 3XBEP). Didn't care the doctor told him to stay away from crowds. He ended up in hospital with blood clots in his lungs from the Chemo and couldn't go to the party. It is hard to believe that was a year ago.

              Thank you! This scan was a little easier on me than the 6 month scan! It seems each checkup I’m feeling more and more confident about my health!

                  Still all clear. Chest X ray and markers look good around 20 months post chemo.
