Great news

I have not spoken directly to the oncologist but Nicky had a brief conversation with her this morning. Regardless the news is excellent.

My main tumor has reduced in size by 75% and all signs of hyperactivity have ceased. This is fantastic. Of course I still have four cycles of chemo and four weeks of radiation to endure but it is the first piece of news that gives us hope for the future, and tremendous hope at that.

Nicky and I are taking her mum out to lunch to celebrate. I'll post specifics about the scan on Monday when I meet with the oncologist.

Fantastic to read this after hearing from Matt today about your diagnosis. I suppose the price I pay for being unaware of your blog until now is that I did not hear this good news, nor the news that preceded it, in a timely manner. So I was shocked and saddened when Matt brought me up to speed today.

Wishing you and your family all the best, and I say that with all sincerity, trite as it might sound. Take care, and I'll be checking in again with some frequency.
