Oncology 9.0

The latest scan results are as follows:

Stable disease, no change to the lymph nodes.

It has now been over  a year since my prognosis was revised from a 40% survival over 5 years to the more terminal one I now live with. In that time, I have completed 19 rounds of chemotherapy, with the 20th starting Friday, and the cancer has not increased in size over that time at all.

By the Grace of God, long may it continue.

From now on the scans are going to come at less frequent intervals, which I will certainly not be complaining about, probably every 5-6 rounds rather than every 3. It will be nice to no longer have to drink that metallic tasting iodine contrast and to no longer glow when I turn out the lights.

Till next time…

    Praise God that there is no growth. Praise God for your stamina and strength. Praise God for you being surrounded by people that you love and that love you. Praise God for the inspiration that you are. Praise God if there is no further growth, and praise Him if there is. Thank you for sharing your journey.
