Mom update


Recommended Posts

Just got back from the oncologist with mom. We've got a good news/bad news situation. Good news....everything that was there (lungs, lymphnodes, etc) is completely gone. Bad news, she has 3 cancerous lymphnodes on the left side of her neck that weren't there before. She is going to start back on chemo Thurs (don't know which drugs yet. Cisplatin and something). It's going to be what they had originally wanted to start her on before they decided to do concurrent chemo and radiation. She goes back for a follow up MRI next Tuesday to make sure her brain isn't showing anything new. If it is, she'll probably have whole brain radiation. So, keep your fingers crossed for a clean MRI.

Everything crossed for a clean MRI! Those good news/bad news results are not fun. You want to celebrate the good, but then you worry about the not-so-good. I'm glad that the chemo/radiation has been effective so there is good reason to believe it will help with the new spots as well.
