What to Post

I'm delighted to say that I have nothing really to post. I talked to my doctor yesterday and told him I'd talked it over with Bob and had decided not to have radiation. The doctor gave me a study ('I remembered you like to read,' he said.) The study indicates I have about an 85% chance of being completely done with Hodgkins. And a 93% chance that even if I'm not done with Hodgkins, I'll still be fine.

And I feel better every day.

Life has come back with a vengence. I have a ton of stuff to do this weekend. Scheduled for Friday night (Sarah Willis' book Some Things That Stay has been adapted to be an independent movie. I'm in her writer's group, so we're all going.) Saturday morning (book club, we're discussing A Thread of Grace by Mary Doria Russell, and she's going to come.) Saturday afternoon (my niece's graduation party.) Sunday afternoon (the OTHER writer's group.) But it's great to be busy. And more importantly, it's great to feel good enough to do all this stuff.

Oh, man, life is good.

Maureen, we didn't talk much at WisCon, but every time I saw you across a room you looked absolutely delighted to be doing whatever you were doing. Often you were actually doing a little hoppy dancing-in-place thing from which I'd get a little Maureen contact high.

I'm very glad to hear you're doing so well. I, too, thought you seemed in high spirits at WisCon, and it showed in your wonderful reading. Thanks for dropping by my blog; do so anytime!

Yes, what they said, exactly.

And I still owe you that drink.

You are recalled to life!

Say, that's a good one. Maybe you could use it in a book or something.

Greg, I was bouncing? (When we first got married, when I got really excited Bob would say, 'You're bouncing.')

I really did have a great time at Wiscon. And the communal singing of "Love Shack" for Zakbar was fabulous.

Yes indeed you were definitely bouncing. It was good to see you looking good! And nice to meet in person even if we didn't really have time to talk.

It was great to meet you at WisCon, and I'm glad we did have a little time to talk. We'll have to do it again someday...

What a great post. I'm so glad you're bouncing! Bounce like Tigger! If anyone deserves it, you do.

Maureen, I couldn't be happier to read this! From a self-centered standpoint, it's wonderful and so motivating to hear of your post-treatment energy levels. Mostly, though, it's just wonderful to hear you happy and healthy and excited about your life.

Good call on the rads. There are a number of respected studies currently that conclude that for a great number of HD patients who've responded well to chemo, rads are superfluous and have potential to do more harm than good. This is primarily the case for the "non-bulky" folks like you and I. (No nodes 10cm or larger.) That's particularly relevant.

Anyway, I'm thrilled to pieces for you, and really appreciated your stopping by my blog to give me a verbal shoulder pat on my last two treatments. Number 11 was today, so I'm almost there!

If I were standing in front of you, I'd be bouncing and beaming right along with you, lovely Maureen. :)

It was wonderful to finally meet you at Wiscon! I, too, noticed how joyful you looked the entire time, and yes, you were bouncing and it was fabulous! You made me happy every time I saw you. I'm so glad to see/ hear you're feeling better!

Maureen - I'm sorry I didn't get to see you at Wiscon ( I was only there Saturday) and I'm so glad you are feeling better! Yay!
