I’ve lost count of the number of times Brouwer has cycled through the washing machine.
Well, as today he takes another spin, I went back through these posts to remember the milestones:
9/2/15 (week 1) – Diagnosis
9/8/15 (week 1) – Debulking surgery > Decrease of 30%
10/7/15 (week 6) – Start 1st chemotherapy (Carboplatin/Vincristine)
12/29/15 (week 18) – MRI > Increase of 20%
2/5/2016 (week 24) – MRI > Increase of another 40% (includes regrowth of the debulked area)
3/2/2016 (week 28) – Start 2nd chemotherapy (TPCV)
5/19/2016 (week 38) – MRI > DECREASE of 16%(!!!!!)
8/16/16 (week 51) – MRI > DECREASE of another 22%
11/15/16 (week 64) – MRI > DECREASE of another 9%
Given the record and the absence of any signs to the contrary, we should expect the results of today’s MRI to be good, as defined as stability/a slight decrease in tumor size.
The mind isn’t always so logical.
The familiar crescendo of fear builds . . . but too the volume on the worries of work turns low and priorities crisp.
MRI is at 7:15 this morning.
Results come Tuesday, look for an update in the afternoon.
