    Update on me

    Had my radiation treatment today and as usual, a Tuesday doctor consultation. In a profession where you almost certainly lose a lot of patients, I could tell she had a bit of a bounce in her step when she came into the room. Her first question was about how my breathing was going.

    She showed me the series of about 15 daily scans that have been done since I started treatment. Even a dummy like me could see the improvement. The lymph node that had been putting pressure on the airway appeared to shrink in every scan until I couldn't detect it any longer. The main tumor has been reduced by about 85 ~ 90%.

    She told me that it is unusual to see such dramatic shrinkage in such a short time and I told her that I've been lucky my entire life. She said that this doesn't mean there still isn't a problem present, just that the problem is a lot smaller now, and with my treatments only half over, she is confident in a complete eradication of the cancer.

    The doctor was happy. I was happy. My wife was happy. And I'm pretty sure my kids will be happy when I call them in a few minutes.

    Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers.

    It is difficult to gain the truth from the media in this age. It is a huge puzzle with small pieces. In order to solve it, one must have perseverance, all of the pieces, imagination, time, and most of all...the desire to put the picture together. Our real trouble is that there are far too few people today with the desire to do this.
