Remission Test Results

According to my PCR test, conducted on blood drawn two weeks ago, I'm still in remission! Two years in remission now.

At my last appointment, my doctor said this hasn't been a good year for him with APL (in terms of relapses/deaths). This made me very sad to hear. And serves as a reminder that I cannot take for granted a favorable test result.

Only five days left in this ATRA round. Then I plan to celebrate this test result as any sensible woman should, by shoe shopping! (and of course eating chocolate cake)
