My Monday Happy Face Hike

Had to share this — I hiked to the top of Hondo Canyon out near Topanga early this morning and discovered a happy face etched into the moss on the side of a rock (see below). The hike was 7 miles long and about 1700 vertical feet. Tomorrow is exercise rest day but I will volunteer at UCLA for as long as they need me.

Good news on one of my LLS First Connection CAR-T patients. She just had her one month scan last week and got the great news that she had a complete response and there is no evidence of her disease. She has a young daughter and I am so relieved for all of them.

As I mentioned, my 18 month scan is this Thursday at 8:30 a.m. Over the weekend, I realized for the first time since my 2006 diagnosis, I don’t feel any anxiety about the scan, a welcome change.
