We got GREAT news today!!! Brad just got home from Vegas a bit ago, he had gone so he could be with Bryce when they extracted the bone marrow this morning. The Dr. said that the results from the Body Scans were back and there is NO other cancer in his body!!! ONLY the tumor in his colon!!! NOTHING ELSE!!! So, he said, that means that the bone marrow should be clear too! He would not tell him for sure yet, but he said it looks like it will only be stage 1!!! YEAH!!! GREAT NEWS!!! He has large B cell non Hodgkin's Lymphoma... probably only stage 1!!! WE ARE SO SO SO HAPPY! THIS IS GREAT NEWS!!!!
Tomorrow he goes in to talk to the surgeon and schedule the surgery to put the "shunt" in to administer the chemo. Then on Friday they go in for a class about chemo. Hopefully they will put the shunt in soon! The Dr. said after the shunt is in they will give him a couple of days for the swelling to go down and then they will start the chemo. He said as soon as they start the chemo the tumor will start to shrink and the pain will subside!!! So, get ready Jose, you will soon be shrunk down to NOTHING!!! GONE! You will no longer exist! ...BYE BYE!
Yeah, Bryce, we are doing the HAPPY DANCE over here!!!
And, of course, we are very grateful that our prayers were answered!!!
