and the votes are in

yesterday, Andrew had an appointment for his six month post-transplant PET scan. 

we have both been really, really freaked out - probably for about a month. this PET, after all, is about as high stakes as post-cancer surveillance can get. 

we have tried as best we could to keep it together. there have been plenty of other things - some awesome, some heartrending - to fill the days. 

yesterday had to come eventually though... we got up early to skirt traffic, waited an hour while the radioactive glucose made its tour of Andrew's body, and then we got to wait some more. after 6 nerve-wracking hours, we got the official word.

on the drive home to Knoxville today, Andrew seemed a bit pekid so i asked him what he was thinking. Andrew said the most wonderful thing to me, so wonderful that i feel the whole world should get to enjoy it. he said:
It's good to be healthy.
