I'm thinking that today is destined to be a good day for those having BMBs and PCRs done (you know who you are).
Just got the results from last week's PCR (after the test screwup the week before), and the numbers are back down to .002. Yippee. And the really exciting news is that I have found a wonderful oncologist. . .got his name from a motorcycling friend whose wife has CLL. Went in to see the guy, and he sat and chatted with me for an HOUR! I'd sent him my test results and a brief introduction with info. He had done his reserach, looked thru my records, etc. Scheduled for a BMB at the end of the month, which is probably unnecessary, but he was not impressed that I'd only had the one at diagnosis. Anyway, this guy's bedside manner is fabulous, he has other cml patients, and he is obviously into being informed, communicating, and doing what's best for the patient.
The only bad thing is that from September until December 31, I will need to go to Kaiser, which means an interim oncologist, and dealing with an interim pharmacy. I will be glad when January rolls around. Now I need to fax my new PCR results to the January doc.
Oh. . .and, dang. . .summer vacation is over. Back at work today (yeah, I know. . .I get no sympathy from you people who have year-round jobs. Just imagine spending the entire day with 200 middle schoolers. . .now do I have your sympathy??)
