We Love NED!

Who's Ned, you ask? Well, Ned is not a person, but an acronym that stands for No Evidence of Disease. And that is what we were told at my dad's appointment this past Tuesday. They ran another PET scan on him and showed us the one from February and the one from Tuesday side by side. The one in Feb was how I remembered it, lots and lots of white areas in the abdomen, some spots on his neck, some on his ribs, a regular old light show. The one from last Tuesday showed nothing. The chemo is doing its job by killing off the cancer cells. His oncologist would like him to finish the chemo treatments and then do follow up visits.

So, I would like everyone to know that the thoughts and prayers that you had for my family played a big part in this, along with the treatment he is receiving. Please keep him in your prayers though as chemo has been very very hard on him, and I am sure will continue to be.

And now, we start our new new normal.
