Journal entry by laurie adami

I had such a wonderful time surprising Gus and spending time with him in D.C. He seems to be enjoying his classes and also his new role in the student EMT program. He’s now had plenty of calls and has seen a lot - drug overdose, suicide attempt, allergic reaction, severe flu and drunk students who needed their stomachs pumped. 

On my trip east, I also visited my siblings in New England and we all  did a hike in the White Mountains to the summit of the Dickey and Welch trail.

This past Sunday, I summited Mount Wilson in Pasadena, CA, 8 miles up, 8 miles down and close  to 4000 vertical feet. The hiking boots I purchased are not going to work so back to square one on that.

Yesterday, I spoke at the UCLA Celebration of Life, a beautiful event to celebrate cancer survivors and memorialize those who didn't survive. I am attaching a link to my Youtube video if you’d like to watch it. I met more wonderful people and saw lots of staff from last summer, including the nurse, Micele, who infused my CAR-T cells on July 16, 2018.

This coming Monday is my 15 month post-CAR-T scan. I will post when I learn the results. Xxxlaurie
