Dear Family and Friends,
Just returned from my visit to Dr. Desiree Hao, my oncologist. The news is GOOD! There is a slight decrease in the lung tumour and cancerous lymph nodes, less fluid on my left lung, and no change to the bone metastases. I cried with relief. This is the best news we could have hoped for. Thank You, GOD!

For the medics in my circle, here are some of the actual words from the report:

"Overall response to interval therapy, as evidenced by decrease in size of the hilar mass (tumour), decreased left pleural effusion and improving mediastinal lymphadenopathy. Unchanged osseous (bone) metastases. No new or progressive disease. Healing fractures of the right 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th ribs are again seen."  (Unfortunately, I just fractured a left rib yesterday.)

So...now I'm happily packing to go to Ontario for my Dad's 85th birthday (Wed., the 10th). We'll be together as a family next weekend. I'll return on May 18th. We had a really fun bridal shower for Lisa on Saturday afternoon. The next big event is the arrival of grandchild #2, due on June 16! Then Lisa & Andrew's wedding on July 1st!

God is good. All the time. THANK YOU for all your prayers. They work.

I love you all,
Love, Jane
