Last Monday I visited Penn for my bi-annual check up. My usually M.O. is to delay the visit for a few weeks. Which I did. For almost two months. Which turned up the anxiety level for the visit. It needn’t had. I got the all clear from Schuster. My counts were robust–my platelets the highest they’d been in the almost 7 years since chemo finished weighing in at 183!!!


This visit turned into my seven year post-chemo visit because Schuster graduated me from an every six-month visit for a check up to an every nine-month visit. We’ll see if my anxiety level can withstand the new timeframe. I think it will.

But this is really great news and we couldn’t be happier.
