M and I went to NIH last week for my quarterly MRI. No pressure walking in to that appointment, Ha! I always hope and pray for the best but prepare for bad news. This was a very good appointment. The MRI showed no growth of the tumor and possibly some shrinkage!!!!! (Insert Seinfeld shrinkage joke here). First doc said possibly a little shrinkage, second more senior doctor said definitely some shrinkage. They don't expect much shrinkage anyway as the mass is assumed to be scar tissue that will not fade away.
So that is that. Life goes on. Next MRI in September. Chemotherapy pills this week then three weeks off, as per normal chemo program.
Heading to visit dear friends this week in the IN/MI/OH. Very excited.
