Status Update: Positive News!

11 04 2011

Yes, I know you must feel like yo-yos. I do, too.

But the meeting with my oncologist today went very well. What she said made a lot of sense. And I trust her and her insights and medical knowledge. She is a good egg.

I was accompanied by my husband, Don, and sister, Lisa. We covered all the bases, got all our questions answered, such as:

Yes! the CT Scan really does indicate shrinkage in the four lung tumors! Yes, it is entirely possible that the three spots showing on my liver are benign/hemangiomas! Yes! There are lots and lots of treatments available and for now, there’s no need to worry about that, as this one is working!

I’m wiped out at the moment, but wanted to post and say, Yes! I think we are indeed headed in the right direction!

More later…promise. This takes a lot outta a girl.
