Everything is Smaller

Finally, some good news. Unqualified good news even! Kathleen had her CT scan on Monday and of course we were anxious to hear the results. We were going to get them on Friday when she had her next round of Chemo, but her amazing GP called to tell her that she got the report as well and wanted to just followup on things in general. We are really lucky to have such a ‘with it’ primary care provider. The gist of it is, is that everything has shrunk or not gotten any bigger. We sort of already knew that as the lymph nodes in her neck felt smaller than before, but it was great to hear confirmation that the ones in her abdomen were also smaller as was the mass on what was left on her pancreas. And of course, nothing new to concern ourselves with. So, progress in the right direction for a change! More details to follow Friday when we see the report ourselves and over parse every last word.
