According to Rick's oncologist, Dr. Whiting...the results are good. Here's what he had to say: Nothing has changed. All the tumors in his lungs, liver, lymph nodes are all where they were 2 months ago and they are all the same size. The good part is, NOTHING is BIGGER. As long as his body can tolerate the FOLFOX chemo cocktail, he'll continue to do it every other week.
We were hoping for some shrinkage but Dr. Whiting explained that it's only been 2 months with this new chemo so he wasn't surprised to see everything looking the same. Rick was a little down when we left the Cancer Care Alliance, so he came home and mowed the grass. A little lawn therapy is just what he was needing (that and a Dick's Deluxe hamburger on the way home).
I've gotta head out for our Relay for Life meeting. Only 5 weeks to go before our big night.
