Mostly Luiz tries to ignore the fact that he lives with cancer and we take good advantage of the state-provided free bus transportation for him and myself. (It saves us a TON of money!)
Every two months Luiz goes to the national cancer institute in Rio for a check up. They do a blood workup and a physical exam. He is working with his fourth medical intern at this point. They are typically enthusiastic and thorough (although his last intern was a pain in MY @ss).
In any case... his visit last week showed him to be holding steady in his blood numbers (no progression of the disease) and remaining healthy as a horse (although common colds linger much longer than they should).
I am so proud of Luiz - and grateful to the goddesses that he remains healthy after four years post diagnosis. Keep it up - my love!
Thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers on Luiz´s behalf.
