Scan results today showed a .2 cm shrinkage in one tumor, and a 1cm shrinkage in the largest tumor, and the others are not lighting up as much; they figure its necrosis!!

Robert hasn't had any treatment for 5 weeks due to the port removal.

He does have a small linear clot it the vein above where the port was. No blood thinners at this time, just told us what to watch for in case it got bigger.

He started the trial all over again today.

We were sweating this one!!

So glad to hear that even with the chemo delay that not only is there shrinkage but also that he gets to get back on the trial.

Wishing him even greater success as he proceeds.

Hugs to you both,

Marie who loves kitties

Wow, Angela, that is encouraging particularly having had a break. Maybe there can be a very long break after the trial. That's so important to slow the train down, and looks like that is happening.
Enjoy the holidays!!!
