2nd annual 4th of July party

Kyle and I hosted the 4th at our house again and it was so nice to be around family and friends. We grilled out, blew stuff up with the kids and then went to Wamego to watch the fireworks. It was so nice getting to relax and enjoy the day with everyone.

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!

Worth the wait

After a two hour wait we finally got to see the doctor. I was pretty nervous for this one and the wait didn't help.

The CT scan I did yesterday showed no new spots and the spots that were there last time hadn't gotten any bigger. The one in the liver is the same size and she wasn't real certain what the two small lesions in the lungs were. She wasn't concerned about those. Right now the plan is to stop chemo and let my body get back to some sort of a normal stage. She felt we had maximized the use of chemo since the spots hadn't gotten any smaller. We will just watch them real closely for any change.

I will be seeing a radiation oncologist about dong full brain radiation. This was the original plan after Gamma Knife but we had to put that on hold since the new spots showed up and I needed to do chemo.

I am real happy with the results today. I know I still have the spot in my liver but it hasn't grown any and there are no new spots any where else, so that's all good news. And I am pretty excited about not having to do chemo for a while ( I hope a long while).

Right now Kyle and I are waiting to board our plane and head back to Kansas. We will be having family and friends over on the fourth so I am looking forward to that.

Thank you for all of the prayers, they worked!
