Boring Is Good

There hasn’t been much activity here for a long time, specifically because there isn’t much to say. Liz has only infrequent visits for bloodwork and other checkups, and the only problem that’s even being looked at may very well be mundane dry eyes. Recently Liz had her scheduled biopsy to check on things one year after her […]

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. Apparently the appointment time she was given a week ago was incorrect, and we were 90 minutes late for labs we didn’t know were […]

Playing Clue

I’ll let Liz tell what she’s going through in her own words: Liz has gained weight, though it was clear from how puffy and swollen she looks that it’s primarily fluid retention (water weight). 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. Every single meeting of this kind up until yesterday came with bad news. Yesterday’s news was NO CANCER. […]
