A visit to Dr. Hema

Today we traveled to Big City for a regularly scheduled visit to Dr. Hema. As I suspected, he said I am doing very well. He confirmed my estimation of the meaning of my recent blood tests. He said I looked excellent when he considered where I had come from 2 1/2 years ago. At that time, I felt and looked terrible and was fighting Rituxan. Now, I feel great and am fighting...well, nothing aside from an appetite for fattening foods!

At my last CT scan, part of the result was colored by the effects of then ongoing bronchitis. Dr. Hema is to schedule another test soon to be sure those effects are gone and not something more serious. I will have my next follow-up visit with Dr. Hema in six months.

All-in-all, this was a great visit. Everyone with a very serious illness hopes he or she can go to the doctor and hear he is in great shape and no follow-up visits are needed for six months. My adorable wife and I never miss an opportunity to celebrate. We enjoyed a leisurely lunch and I raised a glass of wine to toast good health and long life!
