Medical News

Sandi had her appointment with the cancer doc folks this morning. Blood work seems to indicate things are relatively stable. They did a minor in office procedure and will be running some tests to make sure what was removed was/is nothing. All in all they seem pleased at how she is doing and recovering from the radiation treatments.

The current plan is to have her do a PET Scan as soon as possible. Hopefully, that will happen in about two weeks.

In a month she is back to see the cancer doctor and get everything checked and to discuss the planned treatment from that point.

While we don't have any clue what the cancers are doing right now, everything they can assess seems to indicate things are stable and she is regaining her strength.

This all sounds pretty positive.

Barry's right. This sound positive. Hoping and praying that the cancer is now on the run and loses the race!

Stability is good. Best to you both.

Thank you, Barry, Jan, and Reine. Yes, this was surprisingly good news especially considering how sick she was last weekend and the early part of the week. They are especially pleased that her blood counts are finally back to near normal for her--which would be a little bit anemic for the rest of us. Her immune system seems to have recovered from the radiation and that is really good news as they don't have to intervene to help it.

Now, if the radiation worked we would have some news to really celebrate...

Stable and regaining strength. That's positive news!

It is, Terry. I just need them to get on with the scan so we know what is happening. I hate the not knowing and waiting for tests.
