Good news! My CT scan I had on Friday shows the tumors I had in my lungs and lymph nodes are no longer showing up. And my bone mets show healing around the tumor spots, which is progress. I continue to get my weekly chemo, and in 4 weeks will get a PET scan of my entire body. This will be a good indication if we can stop the chemo at that point. Right now just dealing with my hair thinning, and hoping that all it amounts to. The type of chemo I get now isn’t supposed to cause complete hair loss, so I am keeping my fingers crossed…

A big thank you to those who came out this past Saturday to the Golf Outing and to the Dinner! It was a great time and a good reminder of all the friends and family I have around me. Thank you for all the support and for all the love you continuously show me!
