Had not been to NY since September. Today I came with Elsa because she had a CT-Scan and PET Scan and came to find out if she could go on with the study drug.
Yes, SHE CAN.
The tumors were stable, even after interrupting the study for a month due to her infection at the port site. Her doctor was very happy and so were we. I am usually very cool in these situations as I am always prepared for whatever news. My thought is always that as long as we can go on trying something else, it's good if something works, but if it does not, then the fight goes on. But this time, since it worked last cycle, I was hoping it would work this cycle too. So I was a bit nervous and hoping for good news, so it was a relief to hear that the drug is working and that it has stabilized her tumors.
Elsa deserves this, so I am really quite happy. I do not even mind that we have to thread through Connecticut traffic now.
Like Maya says: Yayey!
