Friday morning I had my first CT scan since being on Tarceva (and the clinical trial drug). In the afternoon we got a phone call from Dr B. with a preliminary report. I am responding better than expected. The main tumor is at least 50% smaller and the lymph nodes in my chest are dramatically improved. This response is expected to continue, too! That’s the typical trend. We are ecstatic and a bit stunned. We get the full report on Tuesday, but get to start celebrating now!
