Bye Bye Bubbles

Met with my oncologist yesterday and discussed if it was time to go back on maintenance and see if the immune system can handle the Rituxan again.  Bloodwork showed good numbers for the immune system, so we decided to postpone til October to go back to the Rituxan.  Naturally, the long term goal is to stay in remission and no have any recurrence of the lymphoma.  So October it is, and hopefully it won't hit me too hard since I have been off of it since October 2011.  Will have my next PET scan before it too.  All is well, thankful for this.

Bike to Beat Cancer 2012 is coming Sept 22nd, help support my ride for a near and dear cause for me.

Bubbles did

Latest round of immunoglobulins, aka Bubbles, all went well.  I was pretty exhausted from my day job, so I kinda snoozed through this one.  Meet with my oncologist today, discussed going back on the rituxan or staying on immunoglobulins.   His concern is it will crash my immune system again, so he is going to do some bloodwork at the end of the month and see if it looks good enough to go back on the maintenance drip.  Exciting day.
