A year ago this week, Mike's sinuses were acting up again. It wasn't uncommon for Mike to have sinus problems during winter, but last December things were worse than usual. A trip to his pediatrician led to a CT scan. The scan found a mass, not a sinus infection, and that's how Mike and I met.
Mike spent last Christmas worrying about the mass in his sinuses, and whether it was cancer. After a year of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, Mike celebrated a very important day earlier this month: End of Chemo Day.
We celebrated with Mike in clinic. His family brought trays of sandwiches and desserts to share with the staff. Mike plays guitar, so he had a special cake.
The food was awesome, the cake was divine.
But the best part of the day? The smiles associated with the news that the MRI and the PET scan couldn't find any cancer in Mike anymore!
I'm pretty sure this year Christmas will be a whole lot more merry in Mike's house!
