Can you say REMISSION? Well, not yet, but the news was pretty good today. Based on the scan, the cancer in TJ's lung has not spread and quit growing. Nabong said he wants to do 3 more rounds of chemo and after that he fully expects remission in his lung. As far as the brain goes, they will not do a scan on that for another 3 - 5 months, but as long as he is not having any clinical symptoms (i.e. severe headaches) they say he is doing fine.
To kind of put this into perspective, Dr. Nabong told us that if the lung cancer would have spread he would not have even bothered to do anymore treatments and would just have sent him home. I can't imagine how I would be feeling right now if that would have been the case. At least right now we have a little peace of mind.
We still are not looking forward to 3 more rounds of chemo especially since the side effects get worse each time. So, he started again this week and we will just keep plugging along and hope for the best.
Thanks for all the finger & toe crossing and the prayers also. Will keep everyone updated on how chemo goes this week.
