minnie Posted September 23, 2003 Share Posted September 23, 2003 Well, once again, it's been too long since I posted. I'm back at home in TX to spend time with mom. Took semester off. We are waiting on the results of CAT scan. It's her first real "post radiation and chemo" scans. Her last ones were in June when she was hospitalized for severe esophagitis. Onc said that chemo and rad were probably still in body. Tumor had shrank at that point and he could not tell what was tumor and what was scar tissue. We're also waiting for the results of a barium test to see if her esophagus has closed more since surgery in June. She is still having a little difficulty eating, but not enough to stop her from eating!!! YEA! Onc said there's a possibility that esophagus will need to be stretched out again. So, now we wait. I jump every time the phone rings. I hope the news is good, or at least as good as it was in June. Please keep my mom in your thoughts and prayers, as you all are in mine.
