SET EM UP!!

Recommended Posts

Carol had an MRI on Friday and an infusion treatment today and a consult with the oncologist. I wasn’t allowed in the cancer center, patients only, so   when we sat down with the doc, she put her phone on speaker and called me as I sat out in the parking lot.

”Well, I got the results of your Friday scan”, says the doc. “Good news. Your blood work has improved a lot. White blood cells and platelets are back to near normal levels. The enlarged abdominal lymph nodes are smaller. Those suspicious modules the the lungs have mostly disappeared and your kidney tumor has shrunk by 50%. And almost no side effects at all. You hit a home run!”
 

This treatment works on about 1 out of 3 patients. With some, the side effects are too severe for them to handle and the stop treatment.

Much better progress than we could have hoped for.  Tears flowed freely. One more treatment here in 4 weeks and then we should be able to head home for the follow up treatments which should be 1-2 years depending.

Awesome news. Best day in years. Maybe ever!

 

Bottles set em up. From the top shelf. No well liquor. Money is no object. I’m stimulating the economy with 24 hunnert dollars somebody gave me.

By Vulcan's left nut that is the best news i have heard in years!

 

Thanks,  Bob.  You just made my week.  Maybe month.

 

 

O Lord God Jesus Christ, the Life and strength of all that put their hope in You, Whose mercies are numberless, and the treasury of goodness that is infinite, we give thanks to You for the blessings which You have bestowed upon Your servant Carol; and we humbly beseech You to continue Your goodness toward us; and as You have been well pleased to restore Your servant to her bodily health, so do You imbue her soul with all the heavenly graces, perseverance in good works, and prepare us by Your blessings in this life for the enjoyment of eternal happiness in the Life to come; for to You are due all glory, honor, and worship, as also to Your Eternal Father and Your All Holy, Good and Life creating Spirit, both now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Is against Saloon members to shed a tear when they hear such good and happy news for a friend?  Oh never mind, I forgot Cowboys don’t cry.  Is any else having allergy problems right now?

 

Okay—A round of triples for the house!

Handling side effects well is a wonderful thing to hear.
