Not sure what this is worth after we've lost everything, but my wife is still fine and apparently without disease. Should feel great—particularly after having to fight our oncologist eight months ago when he grossly misread a scan and falsely insisted that my wife had diffuse carcinomatosis (which resulted in me having to fight zealously to at least have a "palliative" metastasectomy of the remaining ovary—after they cut out many bits and bobs, my reading of the CT scan proved correct), but we're still profoundly depressed. All our peers are having children now, which is swell, but we can't even adopt for several years—and even then, supposing my wife survives, the fact we're Byzantine Catholics isn't going to do us any favors. So it goes . . .
