March 12, 2010

Yesterday Charlie went for another long day of chemotherapy. His blood work was drawn and everything looked very good. There was a slight spike in his white blood cell count (WBC) it was up around 21,000, but that can be because of the steroids Charlie was given pretreatment. But the best news of all is that his CAT scan report was very good and the oncologist told Kim and Charlie that there is a "DRAMATIC IMPROVEMENT" in what the scan shows, Actually some of the tumors/lesions had disappeared all together. But he also told them that Charlie is not out of the woods yet. There are 2 new areas that the oncologist wants to treat aggressively with more radiation therapy.

Despite that little bit of news regarding the new findings, Kim and Charlie were just thrilled with the results. In addition, Charlie not only gained back the 10 lbs he initially lost, but also packed on an additional 6 lbs!!!

In Kim's words..."It was a good day."
