November check-up is good

It's been a while, but the latest news is good. Anthony's November check-up, bloodwork, and CT scan were all normal. Only one more quarterly check-up and then we move to twice a year for one year. After that it is just bloodwork maybe once a year or so. That means there are only 3 more visits/CT scans and then he is past the 5 year mark and considered the same as everyone else.

I've probably said this before, but I was always under the impression that Anthony would need to have a CT scan once a year for the rest of his life. But, when I asked about that a couple of visits ago the doctor said after 5 years post-treatment they consider him the same as anyone else. Not that I don't enjoy seeing everyone at the clinic, but I'll be very glad to stop going going there. As time goes on, I know fewer and fewer people at the hospital anyway.

Until next time...(February)
