Short and Sweet News: Less CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia) cells in my blood than 90 days ago

Good news. 

The absolute number of my B cells where my cancer lives dropped by almost 1/5 in the last 3 months from 246 to 216 after slowly climbing over the last year and 1/2. 

This is a very welcome and somewhat unexpected finding.

I am planning on it being the start of a new trend in the right direction.

4 plus years on PCI-32765 AKA ibrutinib and counting. 

Only time will tell if my resistant sub-clone and with it my CLL is truly shrinking, but the climb has stopped and that is reason to be celebrate.
