Per my oncologist, via email (!) this morning:

Doc: Your PET looked good, FYI.  Don’t know when you are seeing me

Jen: When you say “good,  do you mean no evidence of disease?  Or just a little activity that is probably inflammation, like last time?  Seeing you tomorrow.

Doc: improving stuff from last time, –all inflammatory (i.e. you favorite oncologist is very happy with the report).

So, in light of that anticlimactic and somewhat cryptic exchange, it’s time to call it:  remission.
