Topic: Dad's great news!!!

I just had to share our wonderful news.My dad had his first PET scan since he started chemo 3 months ago.His tumor had marked improvement!!! The tumor went from 8.9 cm to 7.5 cm.He will continue the next 3 months of chemo hopefully shrinking it more.He cannot get the surgery as of now because of location, but his oncologist says we will not give up that possibility.I am so happy.He has been a real trooper and needed this encouragement.Thankful for a good doctor and the answers to the prayers that were sent up.

Kathy....Kathy.... Two thumbs up to a fantastic report.  I am crossing my fingers for a repeat performance.  May the tumor continue to shrink become necrotic or simply disappear? Thanks for sharing the good news.
All my best wishes,
Marion
