Today we went to the Highland Oncology Group and met with Dr. Steven Rosenfeld. He walked into the room, hunched over his phone, like a teenage. He then showed us the screen, a scan of the newspaper announcement - above - that he said he would wait to see. We had a great conversation about history and what they did in the 19th century without digital toys.
One year ago, the tests showed Christina at stage 4 cancer, with a node growing on her back - very painful. Dr. Rosenfeld started the treatment at once, just before Christmas - 10 days in a row of radiation - astonished the lab - and hip shots plus pills to suppress new growth. He started immediately with both. Since then the definitive blood tests have all been great, including today's.
We also visited the diabetics specialist this week, to make sure the blood sugars on the Libre were good. She said, "You will probably be the only patient this week with such good results. You did not go too low or too low." The Libre sticks in the arm and gives constant results.
Thank you for your prayers. Christina has gained strength and health all year. This year wee upgraded all our doctors except Dr. Rosenfeld and Melanie Sutton, the diabetic specialist.
