  • Brians ct scan results.....

    ok, as i mentioned in the previous posting, Brian had a scan today and mary ann said that there was MORE! improvement in all of the tumors!!! the liver tumors shrunk! the tumor in his abdomen shrunk! we dont have the markers yet, but do you think that because the tumors shrunk more, that the markers should be good? maybe the tumors are infact dead? i hope so!!

            I'm glad to hear the news. Hopefully this will give you some relief. It may be crazy in New York, but if the weather there is as nice as it is up here, I think that snippet of good news calls for a celebration... gelato sounds good right about now .

                            Not only is it good news that the markers are stable, BUT! the ct-scan showed more shrinkage in the tumors!! does anyone know if that means they are dead? if so, where are the markers coming from?
