SBeth Posted May 24, 2005 Share Posted May 24, 2005 Hi Everyone, Well, we did the battery of tests last Thursday and Friday. Thursday Bill had a chest CT and bone scan and then on Friday he had his brain MRI. We got the results of the brain MRI immediately and it was very good news. The two remaining "spots" on his brain continue to shrink and the neurologist was very pleased. We were relieved to say the least as his tremors and stability on his feet have worsened a great deal lately. The neurologist seems to think it is one of the many anticipated side effects from the WBR. Anyway, we heard the words shrinkage and we took off afterwards for a celebration and spent the weekend in Amish Country (Holmes County, Ohio) and it was absolutely beautiful. Today we met with the oncologist to get the results of the chest CT and bone scan and they weren't as good. The bone scans find that the "activity" in the 6th (and now 7th) rib have significantly increased. The chest CT states suspicious metastatic disease in his left lung. His pain contintues to intrude on our happy times and he is having more difficulty managing it but you would never know it to see him. He's incredible. We continue to fight this disease, but are not allowing it to take up any more time in our life than we have to. Our one year celebration pool party is Sunday...here in Cincinnati...all are welcome! I understand, from my husband, this is going to be the Mother of all pool parties! Love and prayers to all, Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
