A Treatment Update and Good News

11 Oct

I’m dragging tonight, so this will be short and sweet.

I had my routine 4-month CT on Monday so they could look at my left kidney. The previous two scans have shown a very small amount (2 to 3 mm) of “thickening” which is what they refer to as the lymphoma. This week’s CT showed more clearly just 2 mm, so they consider this to be stable or even slightly better than that. Yay!!

After my appointment with Dr. D today, I had my fifth maintenance treatment. It went smoothly, but I’m feeling kind of icky tonight as expected. I should feel better after a good night’s sleep.

Thanks for all your prayers and love!  It means so much to me.
