Just an update
This second dose of round ten has hit Trent pretty hard. He has endured a lot of intense pain this week. We have just done our best to treat it the best we can and keep it under control as much as possible. Today is really the first day he has been out of bed. He is still very tired and has spurts of feeling good, but mostly he is just feeling pretty yucky. We are getting anxious and excited for the next scan. If things are still shrinking we will hopefully talk to a thoracic surgeon. If they are still the same they may want to do surgery immediately. They may give Trent a break for a while and then do more chemotherapy. We are really hoping that things are still shrinking so we can do surgery and get them out. The surgery is really scary and I don't like to think about that much, but it is a better thought than not being able to do anything about the tumors. Trent is getting really worn down from all of the chemotherapy and I wonder how much more he can take. We are not certain at this point that the cancer has not spread to other parts of his body. I assume there will be a full body scan sometime soon to make sure it is only in the lungs still. We are not counting out the possibility that the tumors will be completely gone :) :) when we have the next scan. Miracles DO happen and I really hope we get that one! But either way, we will just keep trucking along.
