Hi Everyone-

I thought I'd share our good news today. On Monday my husband had his first CT scan since diagnosis. We got great news today - all of the tumors have shrunk! We are very excited, needless to say. He's stage IV with more than 5 mets to the liver (one biggie and several smaller ones, plus some tiny ones on his abdominal wall). I'm hoping that we can shrink his tumors enough to consider resection this spring.

Tonight we went out to celebrate - we took a break from our healthy-eating/organic diets and went out for chicken wings and french fries! It was a lovely bit of normal for us.

Truthfully, we needed this. Husband was getting a teensy bit tough to live with - the stress was getting to him. Thusly, it was getting to both of us. It was fun to have a nice night out.

I believe, I believe, I believe! We can beat it!

    Awesome news, Kate! Glad to see you guys treating yourselves to something decadent (who ever thought wings and fries would be considered "decadent"?)

    I've had a slinky growing up and actually have one of my desk. I love the way you used it, ****.

    Kate, y'all have the **** cells on the run, keep up the good work.
