I'm ct young this from my hospital room as I had to check into club med for a couple of days too get IV antibiotics to deal with a self imposed pneumonia. As part of the drill, they sent me for a chest CT with contrast to see where the pneumonia was. Long story short, it also revealed my tumors in my Mediastynum have decreased in size. The self imposed part was caused by my Taxotere that causes violent hiccups and I was eating Ativan like Skittles. I passed out in my bed, vomited and aspirated.

Go big or go home!!

"Great news about the shrinkage!"

I was in the pool! I was in the pool!  ;)

Gotta be careful with the candy Mike... I was given Haldol after my reaction to the steroids and it knocked my tush out!  Great to hear you're responding to the treatment.

Two steps forward, you are moving in the correct direction, minus the pneumonia.

Fantastic news on the shrinkage! T's reference to the Seinfeld episode made me laugh. Just wish you had gotten the good news in a better way. Get back on your feet soon.

The only tumors that were visible on CT were the bad ones in my mediastinum, the others in my lower lung are no longer visible.

Greg, count on Me giving you a call to set something up when I get back to the LOU!!
