      March 15…I had my first appointment at 7 AM and the last one at 6:45 PM and left Moffitt at 730 PM…arrived back home at 10 PM…it was a very long day of fast food, apheresis, scans and such!

      I didn’t get to see my doc today but I am sure he will contact me with the scan results in the next day or two…he is awesome like that! I usually always get the scan results on the same day…but considering how late everything ran I couldn’t expect it yesterday.

      March 16…dragging my butt to work…I still don’t have the energy or concentration I used to have so it is difficult to get myself back in gear.

       I am anxiously waiting on my scan results…really wished I could have seen the doc yesterday…but oh well…It was my choice to have all the appointments on one day so I wouldn’t miss so much work. And Dr Weber doesn’t do clinic on Tuesdays…

       Yes!! Got an e-mail from my favorite oncologist….

       "Mrs. L; MRI negative, the CTs were stable and show no obvious evidence of disease. Congrats! See you in 12 weeks. Jeff W. "

      Speechless!..What can I say?? March 26 will be one year NED.

                    We live in Dunnellon ( up by Ocala)…I am glad I requested Dr Weber from the start…it's impossible I have heard ,to change docs once started…and he is awesome!  Are you in a trial now?

                        We live in the opposite direction, in Labelle. It's a small town about 30 miles east of Ft. Myers. I'm not on a trial now. I was on Ipilimumab with vaccines for resected melanoma until my reved up immune system attacked my pituitary gland. That was in October of 2008 and I've been on a hormone replacement since. Now I go for follow up scans every 6 months and see the endocrinologist about every 9 months,

                          My thyroid is going crazy for now and hoping it goes back to normal…on 100mcg of synthroid.
