stand4hope Posted December 22, 2004 Share Posted December 22, 2004 Good News just in time for Christmas! As many of you know hubby received a report that he had 2 new brain mets that would have brought him back up to 6 (which was down from 8 ). The good news is that the radiologist screwed up big time (THANK GOD!) and those 2 mets are not new - they are 2 of the old mets. They are still relatively small and have not changed in size or intensity. WE ARE THRILLED! Also, I do think he will be switching him to Tarceva. We will find out tomorrow. We discussed his overall diagnosis with the radiation onc who confirmed that his status compared to his diagnosis is incredible and above average. Hubby told him: "And I intend for it to stay that way!" P.S. As I type this I am very aware that there are many of you reading this who do not have such good news. I want you to know that I am mindful of your pain, and I hope that this post does not cause you more sadness wondering why it couldn't be or wasn't your loved one. It's a hard decision sometimes to know whether to post things like this, but I do think that good news like this is incredibly encouraging to hundreds of people who read this board, so it is for them, and you too, that I post. If you are having a sad time, and have been here long enough, I hope you know me well enough by now to know that I genuinely feel your pain. All my love to everyone, and thank you so much for your continued support and prayers. Peggy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
