One patient with glioblastoma still alive nine years later

I had two doctor appointments last week; one went well and the other went better. I heard my lab work was "great". That particular doc wants to keep me on Temodar for at least another month; I begin the November 5-day cycle a week from today, conclude it on Friday. I see him again on the 29th and I should know more.
Friday in Riverside I saw two more docs. They came into the room with smiles. Always a good sign. In March they weren't smiling. They confirmed the MRI--no evidence of recurrent or residual neoplasm. That's two for two. I have another MRI in January, unless something occurs before then. I won't even begin to pretend that it isn't possible. This is the most evil thing imaginable, and I'll have to be on my guard for the rest of my life.
