Things either haven't changed or they are better. My lab values are good; tumor markers continue to improve. Physical exam revealed that the tumors are shrinking. My ankle and shoulder have healed. Many days it's hard to believe I'm so fortunate when NPR radio is broadcasting the deaths or hundreds and sometimes thousands.

The next step is to check my thyroid. I'll get the lab work done next week. Meanwhile, I've added additional carbs to my diet. That's tricky to do while avoiding sugar, but it sure is fun!
The MD also shared his pessimism about me ever driving again. He knows what a loss this is for me. I ask him about it every time I see him. I'll probably keep asking him, too.
But I'm relieved and grateful to be doing so well. I hope you are doing well, too, and look forward to your news.
