Good News


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

As many of you know, my dad hasn't been feeling so well lately. He finished his 35 radiation treatments about a month ago and was 1/3 done with his chemo before he was hospitalized with extremely low WBC, heart problems, fevers, and a bad reaction to oxycotin. Well my dad has been home from the hospital for over a week ( or 2...I lose track of time) now and he sounds sooooo much better. He finished his 4th round of chemo and hasn't had any negative effects.

He had an MRI yesterday and was called and told to come in today by his oncologist and chemotherapist. His cancer mass (tumor) is completely gone with NED anywhere else!! My brother (who went with him....and also my mom) said that my dad broke down and started crying in unison with his oncologist and chemotherapist! Of course we all realize that his is not in the clear but we are so hopeful because he only had the one tumor and still has 2 more rounds of chemo to go and then his PCI treatments after the chemo. My dad said that the good news (regardless of the future) was worth all the trouble. I just thought I would pass that along to everyone. We shall see what the future holds but in the meantime I will take any bit of good news I can get.
