We had appointments at Froedtert this past week - a six month check with Alex's Lymphoma Specialist. We drove two hours, waited an hour for a blood draw, all for maybe five minutes with the medical team. No news doesn't take long to deliver. We'll go back in the summer for a PET scan and to see the doctor again. In between, there is a spring appointment with Alex's local oncologist. They're just monitoring at this point. We know what to watch for as well. Right now, though, Alex is doing really well.
Life continues to be busy, but the things that occupy us are not life or death. The battery died and needed to be replaced on my Subaru, I always feel behind on grading papers for school, the constant battle to stay caught up on laundry ("always clean, seldom folded" could by my motto), getting paperwork ready for tax time - whatever your list is, ours is probably similar. It's all just day to day stuff, and we are loving it.
There just really isn't a lot to report right now, and I'm okay with that.
