Still working on some design ideas, this is part of the Beaches series.
CT results for v were very encouraging. They usually have been. However, this time the doctor made the comment "...of the tumors still remaining...". Still remaining? Some have actually gone??? Yes, several per the doctor. There are a few small ones outside of the liver area and a few remain in both lungs, however the largest (which had always been the largest) has diminished to around thumbnail size and had started out silver dollar sized. Although the CT cannot perfectly visualize the esophagus it does show the area and that area appears normal. So v is taking a break from chemo. He'll start again in September. We took a celebratory getaway to Morro Bay to take some pictures for the current project.
We have now decided that both of us have gotten way out of shape. Hiking sand dunes about did us in. We've concentrated so much on his weight and preserving energy that we lost sight of something very fundamental; physical exercise. So we see a lot of walking in our immediate future!
In bocca al lupo. m & v
