    Yesterday my husband got the results of his cat scan.His tumour has more than haved but the amazing thing is that it is no longer wrapped around his aorta.Now they will be able to plan radiotherapy once his last cycle of gemcarbo is finished.News so much better than back in Oct when we did not know if he would see Christmas.
