First, let me say thanks to all of you for the prayers, well wishes, good vibes, and advise. Today was the big day-PET Scan results and they were great!!!! 5 out of 6 of my mom's tumors are gone. The only one left is the one around her left adrenal gland. Onc said this was amazing. We are only 2 1/2 months into the Xeloda/Avastin treatments. She will have my mom complete another 3 1/2 months on the same treatment with CT scan in 1 month and PET scan at the end. After that if the adrenal tumor is still there, she will send my mom to Rocky Mountain Cancer Center to a specialist who will remove the tumor and adrenal gland. What amazing news!! Two and a half months ago we were facing doom and gloom. They would not operate because there were too many tumors, and today we are down to one tumor, talking about Surgery, and possibly soon to be NED. I am amazed at God's grace. And I am thankful for each and every one of you. God Bless,
Valerie C
