REMISSION …Take Two

I had a great surprise this morning when I checked in with my Dr. right before my scheduled Rituxan treatment session. If you recall, today would have been my 4th treatment out of 6 that they ordered to handle my Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia relapse symptoms. When the Dr. walked in he asked me when I wanted [...]
