We got good news yesterday. The oncologist said that the CT scan came back clear and the PET only showed a little activity in the original cancer site on the tongue. He said the number on the PET at the time of diagnosis was a 15 and now the number is 3. and anything over 4 is cancer. He seems to think that is really scar tissue since my dad is only 2 months post treatment. He said the ENT will watch it for a few months and then biopsy it to get a better idea. He also said that if it is cancer it appears to be in the stage of dying and that was great news.

Also all of the noded showed that they have no activity. The oncologist said this is the best results that my dad could of had. He told me that he is positive that we have beat this thing.

My family and I want to think everyone for their prayers and support.

Thank you
