Second 6-month update

Had my 6 month checkup today, or the scans and bone marrow biopsy.  Everything went pretty good, not in too much pain.  Where they do the bone marrow biopsy (top parts of the hip bone) is sore, but that's to be expected.  The blood work came back looking pretty good, but doesn't really show whether or not the cancer is back.  So, my follow-up appointment isn't until the 18th, so we'll see how things go.  I'm pretty sure everything is clear, because I'm feeling good.  Good enough to go to the gym and all that good stuff.  So, if you could, keep me in your prayers that everything is good to go. 
Other than that, everything has been pretty non-eventful.  Just working a lot, that's about it.  Hope everyone is doing good.

Open invitation to you and your readers to participate in the Being Cancer Book Club. This month we are discussing “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch. “...the lecture he gave ... was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because “time is all you have…and you may find one day that you have less than you think”). It was a summation of everything Randy had come to believe. It was about living.”
Monday is Book Club day; Tuesday Guest Blog and Friday Cancer News Roundup.
Also check out Cancer Blog Links containing almost 200 blog links and Cancer Resources with 230 referenced sites, both divided into disease categories.
Please accept this invitation to join our growing cancer blogging community at
Take care, Dennis
