Six months of being cancer-free. 60 more years to go.
It’s been a wild ride over the last six months, but here we are, at the six-month mark, and still full of functioning cells and not looking back.
The Most Important News
Last month, I had another scan at Mayo and it came back crystal clear. The inside of my body looks like anyone else’s. Other than that, it has been pretty quiet. When you’re healthy, the doctor visits are uneventful – and we’re thankful for that.
Going forward, I’ll meet with my doc every three months, and have scans every six months. Long term, the two-year mark is what we’re gunning for. Once we reach that, there is a very small chance this comes back.
This update is sort of hard because there isn’t much more to say.
I would like to again thank everyone for the support, well-wishes, prayers, generous gifts, and visits to the chemo room. You are all amazing and I wouldn’t have been able to get through this as well as I did without each and every one of you.
What Have I Been Up To
I’ve made the most of it. Over the last six months, I’ve seen some amazing places and done some incredible adventures. In case you’ve missed some adventures (and because I’m super slow writing), this is what I’ve been up to:
- Backpacked in Sedona
- Explored Monument Valley and Southern Utah
- Hiked across the Grand Canyon in one day
- Summited Mt. Whitney and explored Yosemite
- Backpacked 40 miles across Wyoming and explored Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons
- Backpacked and adventured throughout Colorado. Summited another 14er.
- Spent 10 days in Iceland with an amazing group of friends
It’s pretty quiet right now but all of us Arizona people are pretty excited that the weather is finally cooling off and we’re entering into the best time of the year.
One Final Thing
This weekend, I’m walking in the Lymphoma Research Phoenix Walk and raising money for cancer research. If you’re interested in donating, that would be amazing!
One more, one more thing
I’m selling calendars again this year. If you’d like one, you can request one here.
