I got my latest PET/CT scan results back yesterday and there was plenty of good news there. All major organs clear, brain clear, no sign of original tumor. Nothing life threatening at all. The only small fly in the ointment is continued and intense activity in the left lateral rib and T9 vertebrae (which could be indicative of healing as I am taking a new bone strengthening cancer drug called Xgeva) and one new spot on my right femur. My oncologist was pleased with the report and so am I. The bones may hurt, but they won't kill me. As long as it stays put things are looking good.
I continue to contend with various and ever-present side effects from the many medications I am on, but I can live (and pretty well, too) with these things.
Jay's friend, a neurologist, commented recently to him that in his entire career he has never seen anyone bounce back from brain mets like I have. That was wonderful to hear.
Thanks to all of you who are very much on this journey with me daily.
