Stop 'n Go......
Ok, the new pcr results are in......... and Steven passed again! With a little jump downwards this time, we are all fine and can get on with less stressful stuff for the next three months again.
Not quite sure how to go on until the results come in, but at the same time determined to go on no matter what, but that tiny niggle of doubt, or is it fear, lurks in the back of my mind, making sure that going forward is not a totally smooth road.
But, once again, the worry was for nothing - it's good. It's good again. It's good still!
And so life will tootle on forward, filled the deep gratefulness that Steven is still responding to his Gleevec well, that there are no adjustments to make and that he is feeling great too. It's quite amazing that no matter how much or how little I worry about these quarterly results, I am always deeply grateful afterwards. Well, I am always deeply grateful, but it seems to come with a special depth in the days right after good results. It's times like this that my heart aches for the mom's who did not get the good news results, for those mom's who have lost their children to this horrible disease.
And so.... till next time.
love and light
Annie - one very grateful, very relieved mama :)
