We're just back from my visit with Dr. Livingston and the news is really good! The area of enhancement, indicating cancer on the MRI, is completely gone! :>) Dr. Livingston asked me, "Are you crying or are your eyes just watering?" I was just so very relieved! Now, this doesn't mean there isn't any more cancer, but it sure makes it a possibility. The lump that Dr. Livingston and I have been feeling measured smaller this week also. It was originally 7cm x 6cm when I first saw him in January and today measured 3cm by 4cm. Dr. Livingston is still not really sure what it is. It doesn't show up on ultrasound or the MRI. He said today that there could be cancer encapsulated in scar tissue. I think he just wanted to make sure I didn't spend the next month completely worry free. :>) I just keep telling myself that I've had two biopsies taken from that area that were benign.
So, one more month of chemo and we'll start to plan surgery. I'm starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel right now and thank goodness it's not the light calling me home! :>)
I know I say this over and over again, but thank you everyone from the deepest part of my heart for all your prayers, good thoughts, and encouraging words.
Love you all tons!
