Journal entry by Brenden Butler

What’s up party people
Just a quick update here:
On Thursday March 26, I had my 6 month post treatment scans. This is a big milestone, being far enough removed from treatment that physically, things are starting to feel somewhat normal again. Anyway, it was a quick trip to the ghost town like scene at Medical City Dallas. It consisted of chest CT, X ray of my entire residual left leg, and normal blood work in the clinic. The blood work all came back with positive results. Counts getting back up to normal with the exception of white blood cells, that number will take at least a year to get back up to normal. However it is on a steady incline. So all good on that front. The weather has been great the last couple days so I jumped at the opportunity to mow the grass at my mom’s house. While I was out this morning, we got the call that my scans were all clear. Good news there of course. So there’s the quick update for now. I’ll probably write something in the next week or so to update everyone on my transition back into real life, including but not limited to, my first season as a coach, college decisions, hospital visits, and upcoming events. Until then, stay inside, stay clean, and try to keep from going crazy.
