Phil pointed out that I used the word "stable" in the post below when I probably should have used the term "unchanged." He's right... "stable" gives the impression that the myeloma is under control when really we have no idea what it's doing. With only a few points on a graph it's impossible to know for sure. But since it appears that things are still trending upward since his diagnosis, we are really just waiting to see how his test results will play out in February.
So to correct my earlier post, we aren't out of the woods yet. But we are still relieved that we have a few more months to not have to think about it, which is good news in our books.
