Good News!!!


No cancer in the lungs! :) :) :)

New info:   The bone scan results will be available next Tues. afternoon.  He will have a central line put in Monday, the 12th, plus get a bone marrow biopsy and aspirate while he is under general anesthesia.  They should be able to rule out that the cancer has not spread on the 14th.  He will start his first chemo treatment, then go home Tuesday and get another treatment the following Tuesday.  Then they will probably go every two weeks for about 30 weeks.  He will at some point soon, have to have radiation therapy.  Surgery is not really an option as he has way too many enlarged lymph nodes and surgery would not be a viable option.  They should see some results within 2-3 weeks of the first chemo treatment.
