I am in shock. After crying and feeling so frustrated over no improvement in the mass for Joey I went in today and the oncologist had another radiologist read the results because she was sure there was some change. She was right. the mass is smaller. There is improvement. This treatment is working still, even on the maintenance. And even better, his liver looks as if there was never active disease there, and there were 3 places of active disease!

That being said, he lost quite a bit of hair today, from the top of his head. the sides and the back is still there but the top is missing alot now. Weird that so far into treatment and NOW he starts noticably losing his hair. but its a small price to pay.

I might be biased, but I really LOVE bald kids. They are beautiful. It makes their eyes the focal point. (Yes, I used to be a chemo baldie too.) I think they're all gorgeous.

That's GREAT GREAT news about his liver and the mass shrinking. OMGosh, I could cry happy tears for you. What a wonderful post to wake up to!!

Thank you, tasha_mae, for my siggy!
