Hi, sorry we have been slow with the blogging. There must be some blog-term for that!

To clear up the last blog, "disomy (chromosome) 3" is good; that means there are two copies of this chromosome, which is normal.

We did meet with an oncologist (Dr. Sato) in Philadelphia during our most recent visit, and he recommended continued surveillance. For now, that means follow-up visits, blood tests and liver scans every six months, as well as annual dermatology visits.

So, life is good! We're both traveling a lot, recently celebrated our two-year anniversary, and are looking forward to the holidays.

Thanks for following! Cheers!
Your turtle-bloggers,
Mark and Ash
