Finally, at last! From that speck on that clover
Their voices were heard! They rang out clear and clean....( Horton Hears a Who)..

Regina had an MRI last night. Today we went to see Reginas doctor to discuss our further plans. Reginas blood counts are great. But.....

But but but... I am not very happy about Reginas MRI. I should be. Radiologist reported- NO change in scans... BUT again, there is that BUT. Dr Dhall reviewed Reginas scans and he showed me tiny quiet bright spot. Just coupe of millimeters big. But it is there and we do not know what it is. That pretty much was only change in Reginas brain. I was hoping dead tumor had dissolved little more, but not, it is still there. And that tiny spot was in the middle of one of those dead spots. Usually in MRI everything that is highlited with Contrast is NOT SO GOOD. But this spot could be many things. - Necrosis, maybe that part got more contrast ( dye), maybe it is something else, BUT it could be new tumor. There nothing much we can do. IF it is indeed cancer and it decides to grow, then Regina will get symptoms pretty soon, since PNET is pretty aggressive from it's nature..

We just hope it's nothing big. We do not like waiting game... Since Reginas counts are good, we are going to do Oral Temador ( chemo) in low doses, and in 2 weeks.. and there will be another treatment available that we will start in 2 weeks and do it every 2 weeks. ( non Chemo).

So there you go. Regina also had aerosol Pentamidine ( spelling), to protect her lungs. She hates this treatment. This makes her head hurt....

I so hope everything is ok with her. I don't know how she could stand going through anymore treatments and everything plus all she has already been through. Hang in there, it's got to keep getting better.

There are worries and they stay with us too!
