Recently realized that, though we haven't added a post here for almost a year, there are still people who read this blog. Good news, readers: Chris had his 18 month scan and everything's still fine. In fact, he rode in the RSVP bike ride last summer as planned, and did the STP this year! He's doing GREAT.
To those of you who stumbled across this site because you or someone you love has discovered they have kidney cancer, I hope this site can offer you some hope. We're still not "in the clear", but Chris was very lucky to have a very non-agressive type of cancer, so the prognosis looks good. He just has to get CAT scans and chest x-rays every six months, but otherwise he has no "treatment" to take. We get antsy just before each visit to find out the results...holding our breath waiting for the doctor to say "he's fine"...but so far, so good.
