Andy's Dr. Appt

First, sorry for the long pause. I've been down with a chest cold. OUCH!

Andy had an appointment today with his oncologist. His CT looked great, as did his AFP numbers. She wanted to observe Andy. She watched him at play, communicated with him, etc. She was happy with his progress.

He will have another appointment on 4/14 to do pretty much the same. He'll have a CT scan in about 3 months. After that CT scan, he can probably have his port removed. Hopefully he'll be coming off the Bactrim at that time as well. You'll recall that he's still on Bactrim but that it's his last remaining drug.

So that's pretty much it for now. Again, so far so good. No signs of cancer coming back.

We saw quite a few familar faces. Some of those kids with leukemia are in treatment for years. I feel very comfortable and safe around the other parents and the staff at the hospital. Once we walked in the door, all of the pain I've been feeling lately just went away.

I don't know. It's weird. I'll get over it.
