So after a long day of appointments today, okay it wasn't that long. But anyways after all my appointments I am pleased to say that my tumor has.... (drumroll).... SHRUNK EVEN MORE! Not that much, but hey, I'll take what I can get! It's an answer to my prayers, and for that, I'm grateful:) All of my doctors, my RO, NO, Speech and swallowing therapist, Physical therapist and all of the nurses are so impressed with my improvement, especially when they found out I ran that 5K. It's kind of exciting to see them so impressed.
Anyways, Dr. Broniscer said this is the part that's always out of their control, because I'm still on the chemo (I almost had to be taken off for a week because my GGT, (liver test) is about 7 times the average persons) So hopefully the chemo will kill the tumor because it's still alive, and DIPG tumors are very aggressive. So we're still hoping and praying this chemo will kill the tumor, and all will be well. But whatever is in the plan for me is what's going to happen, so I'm not about to fret. Anywho, just thought I'd update ya'll since there has been so much support, and many prayers. Thankyou!
PS, I got my second flu shot today and I made my mom get one too! Watch out, Dad, Lauren, Devin, Heather and Jordyn, you're next!
