I’m awake and I have energy. This will probably last for a short time, so I thought I’d take a short minute to write. It’s all good news:
I am Philadelphia Chromosome Negative!
That is very much good news, and an answer to prayer. It doesn’t increase my prognosis, as being Ph-negative was already factored in, but it does confirm the treatment plan I was originally given. It’s still a long road ahead. 7 more months of chemo, 2 years of chemo pills. 5 years until I am considered cured. 12/8/2017 is the party date to celebrate my cure, and let me tell you it’s going to blow the celebration for 12/12/12 away!
