We are rejoicing!
We returned to INDY from Queretaro yesterday afternoon (May 2) and got back to the house in INDY about 1:30 AM. Today (May 3) we did a bit of unpacking and got ready for the appointments at IU Hospital that was the first follow-up after the Radiation treatments that was done at the end of February. Eric had blood tests and a High Contrast CT Scan and then we met with the Radiologist that did the Y90 radiation treatment.
The news was excellent!
The doctor did start with a word of caution, that the scans will still be reviewed by another specialist, but according to his revision the tumors have been killed.
The scans did show one small area on the largest tumor that still showed a "reflectiveness" that often would indicate active cells, however, he felt that this area was not in-fact active.
The other specialist will look over the scans to confirm his conclusion and also will look over the rest of the scans to confirm that there are no suspicious areas throughout the body core.
There is no additional treatment presently in consideration. We will begin a process of having the CT Scans about every three months and that will most likely continue over the next few years.
We are so very grateful for the prayers of so many who have lifted up this medical concern on our behalf! We are feeling blessed because the Lord has been gracious to us during this whole process.
