Good News

My brother had an appointment with his radiologist yesterday & I got the update from my mom this morning. The good news is that the only thing detected on the CT scan from last week is only PEA sized & the dr. said that it could even possibly be just scar tissue.
They are still going to do preventative radiation, of course, to be safe rather than sorry -- we certainly don't want this stuff to come back!
He has to do 20 treatments that will be 5 days a week for 4 weeks & will be starting that on the 25th of this month.
So, thats the update for now...what a ride the last 8 months has been for our family & we're very excited that there seems to be a proverbial light at the end of the tunnel!
Here's a pic of Jeff & me when I went down to Virginia in the Spring. Hopefully I'll get the chance soon to post a few pics from dad, mom & Jeff's summer visit out here to Kansas!
