I saw my oncologist on Tuesday. She said the CT Scan showed the turmors in my lungs and lymphnodes were still growing even with Chemo. She has decided to take me off Chemo for 6 weeks to give my body a chance to recover from the drugs. She then wants to do another test to see how fast the tumors are growing. We will then possibly start radiation on a huge lymphnode in my neck to try and shrink it. We will also talk about more Chemo then. She said we are going to see if the Chemo side effects are worth it and we are now just trying to make me comfortable for as long as we can. Not a very fun or uplifting visit. Please continue to pray for my family and myself. My current goal is to still have a good quality of life at Christmas. I love all you guys and sure miss all of you. HC.
