GREAT NEWS :)
1. No metastasis to his spine!!! Yippeeee! Thank you Lord.
2. Bloodwork shows the tumor markers have DECREASED! Tumor markers determine the presence and strength of the cancer and or cells.
3. Dr.Tu is happy with Bubba's tolerance of his first round of chemo. In fact, the Dr is going to give Bubba another important chemo treatment TODAY... to get in there and ...attack the tumor since it has shown to be responsive to treatment (more good news) and while Bubba can handle it. The treatment today will deny the tumor time for recovery. As far as future treatments, Bubba will receive 5 days of chemo with each visit. Dr. Tu mentioned possibly 4 more chemo treatments, then, analysis of the progress. At this time, nothing is set in stone related to the number of treatments my brother will need.
Bubba is young, healthy,strong and Dr.Tu has complete faith in my brother's ability to battle this disease! --Dr.Tu's words to my brother: "The chemo hurt the tumor, not you" ...
Yes! Thank you Lord.
Thank you all for praying so hard.
Love, Ila Mae
