Our prayers are being answered… “The Metastatasized Liver Tumors have both decreased in number and in size.” -translation the Chemo is doing its job-killing the cancer! That is the message I received from Dr. Duane today. I had my CT scan this morning and Dr. Duane called me on his day off to let me know the good news. That is all the info. the Radiologist emailed to Dr. Duane so I don’t have anymore in the way of stats(numbers and percentages of decrease). The Dr. said he was contacting my Liver Surgeon so we can set up a time in early January to review surgical options. Yes surgery is never fun, but that has been the goal for myself and Dr. Sielaff (the Liver Surgeon) from the start. I will still have my 7th Chemo treatment on the day after Christmas. At that time Dr. Duane and I will review the scan together and figure out what the plan will be going forward. As a cancer patient I’m not sure you are ever out of the woods, but this is a good sign.
Karen Update-Karen is doing o.k. I spoke with a friend who’s Sister-in-law had the same thing happen to her on several occasions. She thought she was having a heart attack and it was actually an asthma attack. We now nebulize Karen with Jaxson’s nebulizer to keep her feeling well. So far so good.
Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers-they are working!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
