I am still in shock.... a FANTASTIC shock. Onc said the 15+ nodules in my lungs have all decreased to a "VERY LITTLE" status. I mean that as far as size is concerned. I did have 2 that were a little over an inch and 1 that was almost 2". Now ALL pea sized or smaller. My liver had 4 spots. 1 of those was large and against a main vessel. Now.... there are NONE!!!! My liver is completely clean.... nothing... I just can't believe that. That opens a whole lot of options for me as far as my lungs are concerned. Onc says 3 more treatments and then another scan. He said a very good chance since I am responding so good to chemo that it may burn out the lungs too. You know what that means????? I could one day be NED!!!!! Oh my gosh. I don't want to count my chickens before they are hatched but I NEVER thought I would be here.

Thanks to GOD.... and... thanks to all of you... my second family. KEEP THE FAITH!!!!

That scan was taken after my 4th treatment. I am on Folfiri with Avastin every 2 weeks and then take the 5FU pump home for 46 hours. I felt like I was ate up with cancer and there just wasn't any real hope for me. I WAS WRONG!!!! You keep your head up and know first and foremost that miracles DO happen. I feel like I have been blessed with one. I know I still have a ways to go but my faith is made of steel now.

Jennie, how great!!!! I hope you just keep getting good news. Johns liver had at least four tumors and he said one was very large. The spots in his lungs weren't as bright whatever that means. I am going with him next Wed. and I want to see the scan before he started Chemo. That way I will see the improvement when they do another scan. Next week will be his last treatment until we see his new Onc.
So happy for you Jennie. Do the happy dance. Keepin the faith girl Love Paula

After just 4 treatments. That`s amazing! It`s a far cry from the woman in July who thought she might be seeing her last fireworks display.
