1 year clear! March 3, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — erin @ 9:17 pm

Ok, I’m not one to get overly symbolic or sentimental. But a few days ago I had my 1 year follow up with my doctor. First of all CT scans are still clear and my blood levels are still returning to normal.

Second of all there’s this

My friend Julie gave me this plant when I was in the hospital before I was diagnosed. It’s been through a lot. Haha. After the initial blossoms died it did not bloom again the entire time I was in treatment. In fact, there were a few times it was neglected and lost most of it’s leaves, but it always managed to come back. I got 1 blossom out of it not long after I moved into my current apartment. But now it’s exploding. You can see the one large blossom with a smaller one opening up behind it. There are at least 3 more coming!

When Julie first gave it to me I was on drugs and a little loopy. I jokingly called it my “life plant”. Well, we’re still both alive and apparently thriving!
