Topic: Our Date To The ONC Today
We had our duo date with the ONC today. He was very happy that Teddy made the decision to NOT do Chemo (remember, we always knew Chemo would not work for him) and he could not get over Teddy's attitude and mental outlook. Teddy will see him again the day before we go on vacation to Milwaukee, and will get his B12 shot and a check-up so that he and the ONC feel secure with him leaving. Teddy got a RX for Codeine just in case anything should act up while we are gone. T will continue with monthly visits.
My appointment was full of great news. PET Scan was totally clean. Even the inflammation of one node had cleared up. I don't have to go back for 4 months and will proceed with 2 PET Scans a year. I am told that IF I stay Cancer free for 2 years I probably will not get the GIST back.
Cannot ask for better than all of that and our Cancer dance continues. By the way I treated today, next time his turn to treat for the office visit!
