Remember I told you that Albert recently had a CT scan of his radiated chest area?
Well we got "results".
The radiation oncologist told us that the tumor still on his heart is smaller in size.
Before we jump for joy, let's agree to be optimistically cautious about that statement.
Prior to the test, we were told that the tumor could be smaller, larger, or even the same size. However, size is neither an indicator of improvement, nor lack thereof. And what does that mean? It means that the size means NOTHING. If you're thinking, Huh? You are not alone.
Apparently, we are looking for 'cancer activity'.
AND, it currently appears that there is no activity.
Yay! Jump for joy, right!?!?
The doc says that the radiation is still active and working. Yep, Bert's still glowing!
Soooo, more waiting! In September, he gets another scan, AND THEN we will know what all this cryptic talk means.
Still confused? Yeah, us too.
Sometimes, news is just news.
So let's all collectively YAY!!! No bad news!!!
Thanks for checking in...more catch-up posts coming soon...
