In the chronic illnesses world there are so many things that are not absolute. The should'a, could'a, would'a language prevails! I'm assuming this is connected to liability, or rather limiting their liability in case things take a turn for the worse.
At this time, the chemo in the trial appears to be doing something to Albert's cancer!! YAY!!!
It's funny that no one wanted to use the words 'it's working' this visit. Instead we kept hearing that it appears to be doing something. Doesn't this infer that the meds are working since three months ago we were told that 'as long as it's working', he will stay on the meds and in the study?
Specifically, the tumor they are targeting in the trial seems stable...it has NOT GROWN since the last scan three months ago! Before this, it had shown growth at EVERY scan.
On the other hand, there are several new 'spots' on the scans that we are not gonna worry about until there is something to worry about! They might be tumors, they might not be tumors. Only time will tell, and we've got that right now!
AND Albert has been renewed for another three months in the trial!
So in our vague, vague, vague world...we have decided that something in EVERYTHING!!!
