  • My first official "All Clear"

    Hello all -- it's been a while but I wanted to stop by and say hello to everyone -- I hope you're all having a truly blessed day!! I recently got my first "All Clear" a few weeks ago -- now that it's been 10 months since my IO and 8 months since my RT, it sure is nice NOT to think about TC every single day ...

    After the CT scan the doctor mentioned some sort of questionable-looking growths in my bone marrow but assured me that they looked "completely benign" ... at which point my response was, "Then WHY for God's sake are you telling me about them???" Ah well -- I'm choosing to give no attention to any of that right now.

    Lately I've been diving headfirst into the music and the Michelle Hotaling band is set to have our first couple of live performances this month in New York -- can't wait ...

    Take care and have a wonderful day -- !

        Hey Fed!

        Michelle's myspace account gets updated a little more frequently than the "official" website (kinda backwards, I know) ... so any information will most likely be found here.

        Have a great day!
