Wow! I never thought I would make it to get #1. Now up to 15! Well, I had that infusion today. Also got my latest scan results. 2 remaining node tumors are stable. 2 months in a row. They must be trying to grow but can't. Thumbs up. 2 bone mets appear bigger, but are probably all swollen and beat up from the radiation. Understandable. That is why my radiation oncologist doesn't want to see me for 2 weeks.... I was afraid of todays visit. Afraid there would be a reason to discontinue my infusions. But no. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Blood work is excellent. And Dr. was smiling and gave me a hug. I squeezed her hard. I really need her to know how I feel. She has saved my life. Every day is a gift. Thanks to her...... I am spent after todays appointment. So for all newer kidney cancer board members, if you ever think we "experienced" members don't have stress or don't freak out in our follow up care, think again. And for all on board who have become my dear friends, thank you. We do this together.
