The radiation is working.
Tumors are stable or smaller. The areas that were radiated as far back as the first radiation in April of 2016 and the most recent in October of 2016 are continuing to remain clean. There is also “less disease burden in the spine”, meaning it’s a lot smaller. Nothing new has popped up. We will start a new chemo on Monday. This MRI was done a little earlier than usual, so we still expect to see effects of the radiation treatment within the next few months.
Thanks be to God, and to all of you who are a constant encouragement and source of support for our family.
For those that like to pray for the specifics: pray that this new round of chemo (with the aid of the radiation) will keep any new tumors from popping up, and that this horrible cancer will not find a way around the chemo!
