Everything is behaving just the way the Dr hoped. The tumor has stabalized, and they have the right mix of painkillers so most of the time he's comfortable too. His blood work looked good too with the only low numbers being the white blood cells, which they expected because of the chemo. He'll go for another scan in 6-8 weeks, and as long as everything stays the same he can stay on the chemo, giving us more time. Once the tumor starts growing he has to stop the chemo and we'll have about 2 months. But so far so good!
