I Need a Vacation
I have been told to write this blog without my opinion so I will. We met with the oncologist today to go over the CT results. The CT showed that there is no change. Meaning the cancer in the lymph nodes have not spread but it hasn't shrunk either.
This latest information can mean two things. It could mean that the PET scan could have showed evidence of cancer before the CT scan. Or the PET scan gave a false reading. It could also mean the PET scan was compared to a PET scan that was taken months prior and not the latest one. Bill said that the tech had some troubles during the PET scan.
With all the uncertainties, the oncologist is going with the cancer is being maintained by the current treatment. So, chemotherapy treatments will be continued. From now on, CT scans will be done every 2 months to keep a closer watch on the cancer.
I should be out dancing for joy. However, I am both mentally and physically exhausted to celebrate. I need a vacation after all of this.
