March Madness

Since the last time I've blogged I have been to Houston to get the latest PET scan results and also done (1) ten day round of Chemo. I start another Round next Monday. The results from my last scan were again very good. I am so thankful for the great progress. I didn't have any spread or growth of the existing tumors, and even had some very small shrinkage of the tumors in the abdomen wall. My doctor in Houston has been very encouraged at the success of the chemo treatment plan thus far. I will go visit Houston and have another Scan and checkup in Mid April. Dr. Araujo is actually going on a 90 day leave in late April as she is having her Second Child. I will just have one appointment in Houston while she is on leave in Mid June. Dr. Milder and his Seattle team of Nurses/Staff continue to be excellent. I really enjoy doing my treatment at the Swedish Facility. I completed another round last Friday at Swedish, it went really well. No Hiccups to speak of, just get tired from the chemo, but zero side effects. I had a really cool family trip two weekends ago for my Brother in Law Tyler's 30th birthday. I had a great time with all my sisters! I love this time of year, as many of you know I am a big college hoops fan so I have been enjoying all of the numerous games that have been on. I'm crossing my fingers for my beloved Huskies in the First Round of the tourney. Also rooting for the Mizzou Tigers for all my Missouri buddies.....I'm happy to report quality progress. I still have a long road ahead of me, but it's been a blessing so far!
