I wanted to update you all on Rocky. We are at the 9 month marker in this battle (full story in the about me section). Rocky is on a "lighter" version of Chemo and has beed NED since late January. We went for a repeat PET scan this week and today the doctor told us it was again NED. We are thrilled and so blessed! It is hard to believe that in October they told us he had 6-9 months to live and today he is in remission. Today the doctor talked in terms of years not months? I am almost afraid to be that hopeful. I am trying to be present in today and not get to far ahead of myself. I know that stage IV is terminal but so far we are way ahead of where they said we would be. Rocky eats anything he wants, goes to work everyday and feels really well except on chemo week. It is hard to believe that the cancer is as advanced as they say and he feels and looks so good. The doctor said today we will stay on course with this maintenance dose of chemo every three weeks, and retest in three months. We are thankful, blessed, and relieved that this round of testing is over.
