      Well' I'm here again for my monthly scans. Flew in last night. I've got about an hour before my brain MRI and CTscan, so thought I'd come up to the library and say hello. Not much new to update on. Still just working a bit, staying busy and enjoying the free time. Still optimistic… but a little anxious about these results, we'll see what they reveal. I talk to the doctors tomorrow and hopefully fly home soon after that. If I get some good news, I'll let you all know soon as I can. I hope everyone is doing ok. I'll talk to you soon.

                          Fingers and toes crossed up in maine also for you.  Strong prayers to. Have been wondering how you were doing.  Scans are so tough – anxiousness while waiting for scan time and then the wait after. 

                          take care

                              Best hopes for great scans! I had mine on March 15 with blood tests and apheresis because I finished the immunotherapy trial at Moffitt. Now all I do is get booster IV's of MDX 1106 every 3 months and scans.

                              Doc says all clear and no evidence of disease and congratulated me and said he would see me in 12 weeks…it's kind of scary because I have always seen my oncologists about every 3 or 4 weeks for the past 2 years…now I have begun working again and those appointments seem so far away!- Keep fighting!

                                              We got you covered with crossed fingers. But I wanted add some positive thoughts and prayers on top of that. We are certainly cheering for great scans.
