Good News About Fredia - bjcotton - 02-06-2007

We went to the Oncologist yesterday to begin Series 3 of chemo. Last Friday they did a CAT scan and we got the results. The larger cancer near her stomach/liver/pancreas has been reduced in size by about 50% and the one on her bronchial tube is about gone. We still have at least two more series of chemo after we finish this one. Will keep you up to date as things progress.

Thanks for your prayers and good thoughts.

I am so happy for you BJ, and Fredia. I know how much you love each other. So it is onwards and upwards, I have a sneaking suspicion tho, that some very good nursing is going on.

Wonderful news!! How encouraging to see progress, makes one's will even stronger.

Thanks for keeping us up to date. Feels like a big family, doesn't it? without even having met (well, most of us).

.......continued good vibes towards Fredia's recovery.....

Yes, it is encouraging! While the Nurse Practioner was asking Fredia questions, I noticed a hitch in her voice as she answered. I thought to myself, "It's a good thing Marilee isn't here with the fear of this dreaded disease showing through. Marilee would lose it!" It seems that I am the only one that Fredia feels safe with and lets her emotions show..I'm glad I'm there for her to do so and that she feels that comfortable.
