Hey all...We finally had some good news with no "buts" attached to it (appropriately just before Thanksgiving). Jerri (my wife) had a pet scan last Tuesday...on Wednesday we were told there was no evidence that it had spread outside the pelvis area. Thanks to God, and all of our old friends and our new friends, the semi-colons, for their prayers.
Jerri has a colonoscopy on Tuesday next week, and then starts chemo (5FU, irnitecan or campostar(?) and a third one I can't remember right now) on December 6th.
I was so worried about the results of the pet scan I didn't even want to hear the results until Monday next week; I didn't want it to ruin our Thanksgiving. But, the news was good for a change. It really lifted Jerri's spirits. Our friends screamed, laughed and cried with her. Jerri and I and our kids stayed up till midnight playing games and enjoying the day.
It was a good and fulfilling Thanksgiving. I hope every else also had a good one.
