Meow! CATscan results are in!

The tumors in my chest are once again the same size. No shrinking, but no growth either. My doctor insists this is a good thing, since cancer will always grow if left alone, so the treatment is doing something. I would much prefer shrinking tumors, but I'll take what I can get.

Also, the fluid in my left lung is increased, which explains my crappy breathing and sleeplessness. I'm taking lasix daily now. If that doesn't work, the doctor is going to cram a needle in my lung and get the fluid out that way. It doesn't sound fun at all.

That sounds like to me it is an answer to prayer. Way to go Dan!

Wish they had shrunk, but I'll take the staying the same size. You had me worried there for a bit that things were worse. Glad you're at least not getting worse.
