Update 7/31/10 Got The All Clear

Had my follow up appointment with the doctor yesterday (Friday). Tests on the blood I'd had drawn a few days earlier came back showing perfect results.  No blood count problems, no cancer markers, everything looked perfect.

I've been back at work all week too, and went for a run everything morning.  Monday through Wednesday mornings my runs were short, 2 to 2.5 miles.  Thursday & Friday I added another mile or so to the distance and also did more push ups, pull ups, and stretches.

I only worked until 2 pm on Monday, but then worked normal hours for the rest of the week.  After getting the good news from the doctor yesterday, Julie & I went out for a fun dinner in the city, had a great time.

Unless I start to feel poorly, I don't go back to the doctor for another three months.  At that point I start the follow up observations (CT scans/blood work) that will happen 1-2 times a year for the next several years. 

I'm not sure if this is the last post for a while or not.  I'm tired of writing about cancer though, so I'll probably be taking a break for a while.
