Topic: Got results of 9/4 CT scan

Good news - my CT scan showed no new tumors.  The tumors I have are the same - absolutely no growth!!!  So stable is the word for me!!!  I'm staying on the same treatment plan which is Paclitaxel - two weeks on - one week off.  I'll get scanned again the beginning of December and if I continue to stay stable, I'll stay on Paclitaxel.  It's a happy Friday for me!!!

Re: Got results of 9/4 CT scan

Thank you all for the kind words.  I am so grateful for having this site to go to for encouragement when I need it and to share good news also?

I was telling my doctor about it yesterday and how some of us from the NJ/PA area got together, in person, and how good it was to meet and talk to people going through the challenges of this awful disease.  She is very familiar with the site and the good it does, especially as an advocate for the patients.  She was happy that we got together and gave each other support.

Have a good weekend everyone!

Re: Got results of 9/4 CT scan

Thanks Lisa and Karen.

Lisa, things have been so hectic in my family this week and I have been running ragged trying to help out.  I'm sorry I missed your call but will try to get you tomorrow - Sunday.  We have a lot to catch up on!!!

I'm hoping you're doing better with the hives? 

I hope we can connect tomorrow.  I want to ask you if you were serious about driving to meet us on our next get together?  That would make my day!!!  If not, I'll have to find a way to get to Ohio and hunt you down!!!  ;-)

Love & Peace,
Mary
