Good news. The cancer, while still significant, is smaller. There are still too many lesions in the liver to count but the report gave examples of size reduction in many of them, and sclerotic (healing) evidence in his bones. So the chemo is working. They gave him another round yesterday, as well as Zometa to strenghten the bones. Today I have to take him for transfusions (his hemoglobin was low). I'm exhausted but very pleased. Given the extent of the liver mets I really wasn't sure that anything would work. He's continuing on the same chemo for the time being; hopefully it will continue to reduce the lesions and we'll be able to have some other options.
Thank you all for your encouragement and support. It has been an exhausting few days.
