I’M IN REMISSION! I REPEAT….I…AM…IN…REMISSION!! I literally can’t believe it. I turned up to the hospital for my usual test results and was knocked sideways by the news. It’s safe to say there were a lot of tears! Over the last three months the abnormal cells in my body have reduced from 0.032% to 0.007%. As this is below 0.01% it is classified as a molecular response. For my condition this is known as remission!
So what now I hear you say! Well for the foreseeable future I will stay on my Nilotinib medication, to ensure my body stays in this remission phase. All being well, I may be able to temporarily come off of my tablets in two years time, to try for baby number two. As you know, I would love to make us a family of four, but for now it’s one step at a time. I’ve reached remission which is incredible – my main goal at the moment is staying there! I’m focussing on the here and now and taking life one step at a time. I feel incredibly blessed to have reached this stage and plan to continue living and loving every single day.
