kimblanchard Posted June 18, 2004 Share Posted June 18, 2004 After 6 rounds of chemo, it was time for radiation mapping-with that came a CT scan for mapping purpose and to see what was going on...I've know it was good news for a while but I need to see a faxed copy before I believe anything! It reads "The mass in the right upper lobe has essentially completely disappeared....substantial decrease in mediastinal lymphadenopathy with a residual 1 cm lymph node...lungs are well expanded and clear". How's that for my 83 year young Mom who actually misses her "chemo" friends already-time to make friends in the radiation waiting room. Radiation (which had to be taken after chemo due to her age ) is due to start as soon as those platelets cooperate! She even went and hired herself a driver (a 70 something youngster from town) for the radiation appointments while she feels ok, she didn't want the family or her friends breaking up their day. Nice to see her take control and have her independence. She's quite a hoot. When I grow up I want to be just like her!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
