Preliminary MRI results - good news!

Since Mason was already an inpatient, they decided to go with the "mid-term" MRI today to see how the chemo is working.

The preliminary results were excellent! There is no evidence of the original large tumor, and the multiple small tumors (which the doctors had described as "paint drops" on the original MRI) are all gone. There was a question about one of the smaller ones - they couldn't quite be sure it was gone, but they think so. We will have final results on Monday.

So we are going in the right direction, and hopefully the last three rounds of chemo will kill the last vestiges of cancer, if any still exists.
