The Best Gift

Yesterday we fought through Atlanta traffic, frustrated with road construction and idiot drivers. We were a few minutes behind for the appointment but not horrendously late. Then Liz got a call.

She’s been having pain in her legs, joints, and terrible headaches—yet she’s determined to not rely on prescription painkillers anymore. The good news […]

Remission: The Hard Part

Last week Liz had her Day 100 post-transplant bone marrow biopsy. Yesterday I tweeted this: FULL REMISSION, Y’ALL. #fun4liz — Jamie Chambers (@Jamie1km) October 4, 2016 I’m savoring that moment, a relief I can’t properly communicate with words.
