[cancer] The oncology follow-up visit

Went alone to my oncology follow-up today. No scan this time, just bloodwork and office chatter with the doctor. As good as could be expected. The oncologist tells me that my 5-year survival odds have improved to 50%, which is excellent news. Her exact words were, "You're in as good shape as someone with stage IV cancer can be."

Scans in mid-April, with oncology appointment to follow. All right before Norwescon. So, three more months of being healthy before the next checkpoint.
