I had my appointment with my oncologist today. I consider what he said to be good news! My liver enzymes have come back down close to normal and, as a result, treatments will resume on Tuesday of next week. I will continue this treatment/infusion every other week until changes, if necessary, to the game plan are needed. My concern is that the future treatments will elevate my liver enzymes once again to the point where treatment has to be discontinued. He confirmed that is a concern however also indicated that there is a way to manage that issue. So for right now, I consider my mission to become “cancer free” is back on track. Unless something unusual occurs, be prepared for a dry spell when it comes to an update to the “McVey Report”. The next milestone will be the next PET scan approximately four months from now. As a reminder, this scan will show changes, bad or good, to all cancer tissue.
Currently I feel great and not many limitations on what I can or can’t do. However, I have lost about 30 pounds since I was diagnosed. I see this as a good thing. My appetite is good so bring on the barbecue, ice cream, all the desserts you got, etc!
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
