We were excited to find out my bloodwork showed another big gain against the cancer. I am technically out of blast phase (the final - and usually fatal stage of the disease) with better numbers across the board. Still very tired with usual side effects but nothing I can't deal with going forward. Looking forward to going home at some point rather than the hospice they had planned for me. Thanks again for all your support. Talk to you soon.

Thanks everybody. Next week's tests should give us an idea if the numbers were an anomaly or whether we've really beaten the disease back. If they are good next I will likely be able to go home, sleep in my own bed, and think about what new tobacco to light up. Thanks again for all your comments, best wishes, and prayers. Feels amazing to see so many replies. Best. - Tom

Just wanted everyone to know my hemonc and care team came to my room today and delivered a beautiful leather blank writing book. When I opened it I saw my name had been engraved and the doctor told me "you said you were going to be the first one to write your name in the book so congratulations. You did it my friend". They even spelled it correctly.....
