One year old!

Tuesday, July 24 was my one year appointment post bone marrow transplant with my doctor at Cleveland Clinic. We got wonderful news! All of my blood counts are within normal limits and there is no sign of a return of the leukemia. We were elated. So now, they will start tapering me off all the medications I am on and watch closely for signs of graft vs host. One year ago I never dreamed I would have the kind of day I had on Tuesday and Wednesday. Tuesday evening, we went to Legacy Village with son, Kyle and his wife, Erika and their two children to Brio for dinner. We had a delightful time and I had the most delicious steak! (One year ago I could barely keep water down!) We spent the night with them and then on Wednesday, Libby and I spent the day at Mario's Spa in Aurora. We got the works! We even had a champagne lunch! I felt like a Queen! Again, one year ago, I could never have imagined this! That evening, Kyle and I took Libby and Joe to dinner at Mallorca's in the downtown warehouse district. It was absolutely lovely. How can we ever repay her for my life? I feel so blessed. I have so many people still praying for my recovery and I am do thankful for each and every one of you. You were the angels who carried me when I could not walk and I am grateful beyond words. The picture above was taken in our soon to be new home. We are toasting our life, our home , our family, our friends and our many blessings. Marcie went with us and took the picture. We are looking forward to our new life thanks to the grace of God. I believe I have a purpose to help others going through this process.
