Yes you read correctly - I was told today that I am in remission. How excited am I?!?!? The other piece of brilliant news was that I spoke to the nurse patient educator and Kerry about long term survival and they both said that the longer I survive post transplant the less likely it is that the cancer will come back. Apparently most people that don't make it, don't make it early on. So not only am I in remission but there is a good chance I will stay in remission. I feel like the luckiest person on earth!!

I am so very very pleased for you. I have been reading your blog for some time. My son is four weeks post stem cell transplant, which has been an incredibly difficult time.
I truly truly wish you all the best and long may your remission last. I tried to comment earlier but it didn't accept it, so I apologise if you get this twice.
