We are not at the hospital for the weekend. Yesterday I was informed that Jacob's platelets were too low to start chemo so the four day stay was pushed back to next weekend.
We did end up going to the hospital today anyhow as the CT was scheduled, as well as the checkup with the radiologist. Jacob did good for the CT scan (though it took him 2 hours and three flavors to get enough of the contrast into him as he just wasn't feeling the flavors today). The radiologist appointment went well and he said that the initial reports of the CT scan looked good. When pressed he said that the tumor in the back looks like it has shrunk a lot, which means that there is still a tumor there (in the lungs), from my understanding. :( I never got the full report of the last scan from the doctor or had a sit down with him about it and from that report it had made it sound like the tumors were all but gone. I'm just reminding myself that the radiologist made it sound like it is a good report, so we must be making some sort of progress, even if it isn't fast enough for my liking.
I will know more when the full report comes back, probably on Monday, when I can talk to our Oncologist. I'm thinking that this weekend may seem like a LONG one!
