Good News

We arrived at the doctor's office this morning for Jimmie's first chemo infusion.  We left 2 hours later WITHOUT the chemo - and yet we were not disappointed by the delay.   Instead, we were rejoicing with good news for a change:
  1. for the first time since becoming anemic Jimmie's hemoglobin level quit its downward spiral and headed back up slightly
  2. Tuesday's MRI on Jimmie's brain showed nothing but heathly tissue - no cancer has spread there
  3. Tuesday's pictures of the kidney tumor do show that the vena cava is definitely involved, but not as severely as expected from the CT scan so surgery should be an option afterall
We are still on hold, waiting for the fight to begin.  But the plan of attack is looking better.
