Remission

Good News from Houston. Ned had scans done last week and we are celebrating. His cancer is in remission. I think the Oncologist was almost skipping when he came into the exam room to tell us about the report. While this is wonderful news, Ned will continue treatment at least until the end of the year.

It was amazing to watch him improve. It seemed like there was no change until after his fifth infusion and then I started noticing things getting better. Last week the family gave him a birthday party and while he might not have been a party animal, he was mingling and having a great time. Today is his actual birthday and we are going out to eat.

Since last year when he lost most of his hair from chemo and radiation he has kept it clipped close. I love it. He looks very handsome and very stylish. Here you have Gary, son #2, giving him a haircut in our apartment kitchen.

Many thanks to all of you who have sent good thoughts and prayers this way via the blog comments or email.

Congratulations! I am so happy to hear this! Ned is a very handsome guy! I love men with short hair. I keep all three of my men with close cropped hair. LOL - all three of my men are my husband and the two 2yo boys!
