I seem to be rushing around (without actually moving) like a headless chicken lately. I meant to do a full blog today but ran out of time. So for those of you who haven’t heard – digital devices are crazy !- the scan results were good – about another 20% reduction in the liver nodules which is the target at the moment. I have to admit that when Dr Landers showed me the comparison to my October scan I was stunned at how bad it was then. I didn’t realise how seriously my liver was compromised at the time. Probably because I was still stunned by the diagnosis and we were just doing whatever came next. (“Sorting out my affairs”- the movies would call it). Now though the scan is still a bit scary, it shows my liver as nearly 50% clear. I’m feeling so much better than I did in August at my 50th and I think I’m looking better, despite the chemo. It makes sense now that my liver has a chance to look after itself. Doc Landers also said that he doesn’t think the spots on my lungs were cancer nodules after all, and everything else down below seems to be operating effectively – so all good at 32.
I did my blood tests today and if they’re clear and they should be, if the way I’m feeling is any indication, I start cycle 5 of chemo tomorrow again. Nice to know it’s working.
I need to add that Doc Landers congratulated Pat and me, and all the people who are loving and supporting us – he knows it makes the difference.
Thank you for holding thumbs and crossing all your body parts – you can relax and work out the cramps now! Thank you for caring,
PS. Can you do a postscript on a blog? I’ll say more with pics tomorrow.
Since as my sister said, and I quote. “Oh and now that you’re not ‘kicking the bucket just yet’ maybe you should hang on to some of that dreaded disease insurance – I’m all for having you around for years to come and me slumbing it in Auz!!!!” Nope, we’re going to do the Australia trip in style!
