On May 20, I reached the 12th week of my 24 week treatment plan. (which is just phase one) Time flies when you're having fun right? LOL This juncture was celebrated by a visit to my oncologist and my surgeon. They both measure Little Lumpy with a paper tape measure and have happily proclaimed the shrinking of the little lumpy. Oh YEAH!
THEN I proceed to a blood draw, infusion, my favorite Zoladex shot, mammogram, ultrasound and a biopsy. WHEW - that was a VERY long day, but I like doing it all in one day instead of two. A few days later they gather all the results and have a conference about Little Lumpy.
I must admit I love my team at University of Chicago. I never would have thought this place would exude such a positive feeling. Oncology always seemed to be a dreary place in my mind. One great thing is we communicate via email. So on Thursday I sent them an email asking a random question about sunscreen containing estrogen and if I needed to be extra careful if and when summer shows up around here. I also asked how my results looked.
The answer I received was "The imaging results show the tumor is shrinking".
This CRACKS me up. Seriously - in a go ahead and laugh with me kinda way.
Basically - the little paper tape measure does a pretty good job!
