I’ve been out of town the past couple of days, so I have not had a chance to post my latest news on this blog.  My October 9th scan results were great!  My tumors actually have reduced in size according to my oncologist.  As I mentioned on Facebook, my doctor does not smile very often, but he did on Wednesday.
This is awesome news, and we could not be happier.  It does not mean, however, that the tumors will completely go away – at least under the current treatment regimen.  But if I am able to continue taking the Gleevec, and the results stay consistent, then we can live with the status quo.  In other words, if I can lead a normal (whatever that is?), productive life, it’s fine by me.  I think Vicki said it best when someone began a “What if?” thread with me regarding Gleevec and my cancer.  She said we’re just happy for what we have right now, and we are simply living from day-to-day.  We’re not going to worry about the long-term forecast.
As I said at the beginning of this blog, my cancer diagnosis is a journey.  It will take twists and turns.  We just hope and pray that it doesn’t take too many.
Even “Old Blue Eyes” is smiling!
So, I stay on the current meds, and I get re-scanned in early December. 
More to come……….
