The test results from Wednesday’s CAT scan indicated the tumor has increased by about 50% from the last scan. It is still far smaller than it was initially. The nearby lymph glands have also swollen. I do not know if this was expected or normal having been off chemo for about 5 weeks…. or if it will disqualify me for the clinical trial. I will find out next week.

It is easier to take this news knowing the clinical trial is open. But, it is upsetting and frightening all the same.
