A Consultation Indicates a Pleasant Summer Ahead

I am happy to remedy (make a slight change) to my previous post wherein I mentioned Hubby having been diagnosed last year with Light Chain Deposition Disease.

This week Hubby's oncologist discussed a consultation he made with specialists at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. The summary of that discussion is basically that his LCDD will NOT affect the other organs. This means "no more chemo".

This is good news! Dialysis itself is wearing on the body. Adding chemo to the mix was a nasty way to bring on perpetual fatigue and other side-effects.

We are looking forward to enjoying the oncoming spring and summer. This has been our prayer...a good summer...and no chemo! This prayer has been answered and we are grateful.

Oh God Bless you and your hubby, that is just super, yay!

Spring and Summer are our special times, to be outside, out and about, or just sitting outside to hear the little birdies sing their songs. So beautiful. I'm so happy for you guys!
