Results of CT scan showed the main tumor in liver continues to shrink (down to 10.5 cm - started at 18+ cm in July). Much happiness abounds. Chemo today was uneventful (which is always good news).
Talked with Oncologist. We will continue with gemcitabine only for the forseeable future, reevaluating as CT scan results come in. Removing carboplatin has not adversely affected results. Neuropathy has decreased markedly in toes. She is pleased with my progress. Possible future options include folfox. I've seen it mentioned now and then. Any quick comments?
Rejoice! Easter is a few days away. Spring is right around the corner (right after the next snowfall). Life is good - live it to the fullest. Don't sit on the sidelines watching it go by.
BTW - supposed to be a good meteor shower the night of May 23-24 or so. I just googled it. There are people out there preaching the end of the world, Satan's coming, end of civilization as we know it, etc. And all we have to worry about is a little cancer. There are people out there with bigger problems than us. Scary.
The past has passed.
