dadbags - Congratulations!  Could I ask, did you reach PCRU at some point and (presumably then) stop taking Gleevec?  And if so, did you remain undetectable for these past three years?  I ask because I had given up any hope that I'll ever get to undetectable.  I've had an excellent response since I began in 2009, but have been "frozen" at 0.006% IS for about 4 years.  Hearing that you made it to TFR after many years NOT at undetectable would be heartening to me.

Congratulations on reaching a new belt and being off gleevec for this long.
