Great day at the Tom Baker!

We were at the Tom Baker this morning at 8:00 am to review the lastest MRI and got some great news!!! We have significant shrinkage in the area of concern. As my doctor said "The MRI shows that the tumor continues to respond to the Avastin and VP16. Although we can not be sure how much of this response corresponds to tumor shrinkage or to decrease in the inflammation, this MRI was good and it is encouraging. We will have more information with the next MRIs."

Bottom line is things are going extremely well and I am one seriously happy and relieved guy. The fight is about halfway over and I will still be pushing forward. Such a great relief to see that the path I'm on is the right one.

Over and out.
