My Dear Friends and Family:
Just wanted to send a quick update on my status. Today I got the test results from my second CT scan, performed last Wednesday. The objective is to compare this latest scan with the the results from the initial scan performed back on Dec 16. The results are good. My cancer lesions, nodes, etc., have all shrunk in size. A node on my lung apparently has gone away completely. So, it looks like my interanl organs which were negatively impacted are reacting favorably to the bi-weekly chemo treatments. I need to keep pluggin away at this thing to reduce it even more, so the treatments are going to continue as long as my body can take it. Right now, my hair is very thin, and I am down the four days after chemo, but it is not as bad as before and the up days are better and more frequent. Overall, doc says i am “doing very well” with the treatment.
I couldn’t have gotten this far without the support, prayers, and well wishes from you all. Old friends and family, new neighbors and former coworkers, I have been the beneficiary of so much positive energy I have no doubt of its tangible impact on my condition. I have felt it every day and especially on those few occasions when I have felt low. You have kept me positive and looking forward. It is a precious gift… thank you so much.
Love and Hugs,
