shineladysue Posted February 8, 2005 Share Posted February 8, 2005 Hi everybody, I know this may not be the miracle that maybe everyone wants to hear, but we are headed to Cindi's Bar. STABLE is the word the doctor used for Mike's results today. After 2 months on Alimta, he is stable with some improvement. The CT scan of pelvic , abdomen and chest showed no new mets and the reading went further to detail each area. Previously, there were thickenings here and opacities there etc . etc. There is no indication of any new mets anywhere. The only concern at this point is his rash. He still has a bit of rash to the chest and a little on the face. The doc looked it up to get the grading on it to see if it was safe to give him chemo again today. His concern is of infection, but he decided that it was okay and Mike got chemo today. If you read Mike's history, you will see that his cancer started 4 years ago. His recurrence was diagnosed first of last year. We are truly thankful that he continues to live free of pain and overall, his tumors are smaller than they were this time last year. Thank God, Thank God, Thank God... He is tired , but is able to find something to enjoy and love in life each day. He doesn't post here , but he knows so many of you and he sends prayers for all. I know that there is a lot of interest in Alimta patients. If I can answer any questions, feel free to pm me. I'm not an authority and all cases are unique, but I will be happy to share any information that may help. We are family hereand I send our prayers to all Headed to Cindi's ........ Lots of Love, sue Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
