PET Scan & Exam Results

For the first time since July 2009, my husband has NO EVIDENCE OF CANCER DISEASE in his body!

Doc says he is not surprised he can't swallow, it's still early after the surgery (3 months)and we need to give it more time and more swallow therapy. Easy for us to say, we are not the ones who can't swallow our own spit. But Bob says it's ok, he is adjusting. (Especially difficult this time of year) Most of you know what this is like, so I am preaching to the choir.

They still want an MRI, mainly for baseline of his new throat anatomy following the surgery. So doc is going to order sedation (conscious sedation like they do endoscopy or colonoscopy) and he'll have one in next few weeks.

So great news for us today! Thank you for all the prayers, they are greatly appreciated.
