Yesterday we were in Jackson for my Dad's latest CT scan, the first he's had since we got the last round of bad news, and the first since the shingles outbreak. He gets his scan in the morning and the results in the afternoon for his oncologist, Dr. Graham.
And for a nice change, the results were good. Simply put, the nodes in his lungs are smaller, and there are several nodes that are dying from the inside out ( called "cavitation"). There is no change in the liver (which is a hell of a lot better than some of the recent alternatives), but the doc feels that given Dad's improvement in the last few months, there is likely some positive effect on the liver that just is not apparent in the CT scan just yet.
Bona fide good news. Praise the Lord.
