Went to Mayo clinic for f/u yesterday. Dad had MRI of brain (thought possible cancer) and 3mo PET to re-stage after FOLFOX/HERCEPTIN. We were given great news. Dad's tumors (2) in hip area went from 8 uptake to 2.5 uptake. Significant shrink considering he has only had 2 sessions out of 12. The doctor seemed very pleased and said we would do another re-staging Dec. I'm hoping at that time we are TOLD NED!!! I know he's Stage 4, but maybe there's a chance :). The doctor did say with this progress Dad will get a month off in Jan. Well over due if you ask me. As far as the MRI, we haven't gotten the results, but nothing was on PET. I could jump and scream I'm so excited. It would seem crazy to some being he's a 4, but this is the one and only time since this started in 9/2012 that we've been told something positive after a PET. I'm CELEBRATING!!!
