We got word today that the first round of chemotherapy has done it's job and my wife is now free of leukemia. It might be too early to say "remission" since she still will have to undergo another round of chemo later but as of now, there is no sign of the AML she had before. She's still not out of the hospital after 2 weeks but all we've got to do is get 24 hours without a low grade fever and she can get released to come home. She really can't wait. After that, it's daily outpatient checkups until she's strong enough to go in for the next round. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. No doubt they were the catalyst for this remarkable news.
