[cancer] Slightly better news

Jay actually ate something today. It wasn’t much, but in the grand scheme of things, it was huge.

I’m hopeful again that we’re finally seeing a climb out of the rigors of the treatment.

Fingers crossed, everybody, that this is a trend, and not just a blip.

CT scan tomorrow and MRI on Monday, which along with the bloodwork done this past Monday constitutes the next set of scans for NIH. More news on those as I know it.

    Was the NIH treatment that Jay got the kind of treatment that was trying to get his white blood cells to attack his cancer? I did some google searches on the lab he went to, but couldn’t figure it out. There have been a number of successes with this type of treatments, but none have made it out of trials.

    I hope this helps him.

  14. Fingers, toes and eyes crossed.
