Hey, everybody. Today has been a good day. Well, actually a great day! My first assessment results came in this morning around 11am. My oncologist gave us some exciting news that I would like to share with you all.
The cancerous tumors on my liver and in my stomach have receded by almost FIFTY percent of their original size (over the past 8 weeks)! Although we could not be more ecstatic, we still realize we have the remainder of the marathon ahead of us. I am just thrilled that positive progress was shown in the first assessment; it makes dealing with all of the side effects MUCH more tolerable knowing that it is working! My hard work, determination to succeed, my love for life, my faith, my family, and my friends will get me through the finish line!
Below is my new treatment schedule:
- Chemo Treatment- 7/5/12
- Chemo Treatment- 7/19/12
- Chemo Treatment- 8/2/12
- Chemo Treatment- 8/16/12
- Second Reassessment/CT Scan–Week of 8/20/12
I want to thank you all for the continued support and please keep us in your thoughts. Sorry this post is short, but I am exhausted from a long day of treatment and I am ready to relax.
