    So I had to go do a quick search on your cancer type. I study breast cancer, and the graduate course work I took was...5 years ago (Sheesh!). Most of the people in my program do carcinoma work. I don't think anyone even does any sort of blood/bone cancer. The closest is a ewing sarcoma lab.

    A friend/labmate of mine was diagnosed with some type of leukemia (she never told me the exact type and I didn't want to intrude) last year. She is finally doing better and is starting medical school this month- being in the hospital and spending time in the peds cancer ward made her decide to go into peds oncology.

    I guess the good news for you,which I am sure you already know, is that Hodgkins is one of the most curable cancers. I guess if you had to get cancer, that's the one to have. By looking at the ago of your son, you are coming up on your 5yr mark in a year or two right? That's great!

    I hope your monday was healthy!

    The elliptical is my favourite gym machine-- I actually joined a gym *just* to have access to the elliptical. Tomorrow's my gym day, but today I went for a 12.5 mile bike ride. I was aiming for longer, but got caught in a downpour around the 6 mile marker and decided to head back. Of course, it stopped within minutes of me getting home! The rain was refreshing, though, and a welcome change from the heat.

    That's crazy you have had caner. I'm happy that you seem healthy and in remission. Can I ask what type? I'm nosy when it comes to this kind of stuff since I am science-minded. If it took personal, I understand. Cancer is a disease that affects everyone. I don't know anyone who hasn't been affected by it in some way (themselves, friend, family, multiple).

    Hey I saw your post on the message boards and added you as a friend. I think we have a bit in common! I am also a gamer and science nerd. I am 30yrs old and am currently finishing up my PhD in cancer biology.
