The oncology nurse practitioner called me this morning with my CT results taken on Monday. Kind of a mix bag. According to the radiologist here locally, the mets to my lungs and spine are stable and have shown no growth. This is good. However, and there is, unfortunately, a “however” here, the large tumors in my pelvis that are inoperable, have grown. But (and now I am using a “but” here too), it is really minimal growth. We are talking millimeters growth on tumors measured in centimeters. The NP had no idea which way my specialist at the Mayo Clinic will lean. I mean with him via zoom late tomorrow afternoon to hear his take on the CT scans and to work with him to devise a plan going forward. My bloodwork has been good over the last year on Doxil, so I am healthy enough to start another chemo straight away. I just really would love to give my hands and feet a break. So….the news is somewhat reassuring. They did not note any NEW growths, which is really good. In 24 hours I will have a plan and the next morning I will have a zoom appointment with my local oncologist to put that plan into action. Thank you so much for everyone who has reached out saying they are praying for me. I had messages from all over the world and each and every one of them touched me. Although I am physically alone when I go into those scans…and the treatments, I can feel a blanket of love around me from all of you. Thank you.
