I just wanted to let everyone know how Mary Jo's treatments are going. She had her third treatment last Friday, December 7th. She had a CT Scan on Tuesday, and we got the results today. The size of all of her lymph nodes have been reduced considerably. So, the chemo drugs are doing their job. She was not nearly as tired this time.
Her next treatment is scheduled for December 28th. She will have a CT Scan and PET Scan after that one. The plan is still for 6-8 treatments.
During the second week of January we will be going to Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center in Nashville. Mary Jo's oncologist team at Baptist East want the group at Vanderbilt to look at her case to help determine a post treatment strategy to keep the lymphoma in remission because of the blastic variant form of mantle cell lymphoma that she has.
We truly appreciate all of your prayers.
Mary Jo and I wish all of you a blessed, healthy, peaceful Christmas and New Year.
