Jorge's tumors has gotten smaller and the chemo doctor is happy but one they found was a blood clot where the port is . So now Jorge has to have needles everyday they called it blood thinners for as long as he has the port . So I guess some good news and some bad news . So thanks everyone for listening love you all .

I am so glad Jorge's tumours are smaller. I think a lot of people here are on or have been on the blood thinners. Have a good weekend; enjoy the shrinkage!

My Mom is currently on a pill (Coumadin) for her blood clot. She will need to be on it for a few more months. Her radiologist said blood clots were common.
Glad you got some good news though :)

That's wonderful news abou the tumors! I'm sorry about the clot, but I'm sure they'll be able to handle that situation.

*hugs to you both*

Good news about the shrinkage Tina. Like others have said, blood thinners seem quite common. It is good that they caught it and are treating it.
Thinking of you. You are a great support to your hubby.
