Good Day Today

Marco started to look and feel a little bit better since yesterday. He is not as tired and as nauseated as he has been. Witch is a good thing, he is still trying to take it easy. He will have at least 3 full days to recover from all the chemo side affects.

The stress has been easily starting to creep up....Marco will be getting his CT Scan on Monday which will determine a lot of things. We will find out if the tumor has shrunk to Dr. Chow's expectations and if so, he may continue to have his chemo later on that same morning with one more cycle to follow to complete 6 cycles of chemo.

If tumor hasn't shrunk significantly, but hasn't grown, then Marco will have an appointment set up to see Dr. Trisal and or Dr. Grannis in which time they will determine what will be the next step to do the surgery or not. Last, if chemo is not working and it is still growing hopefully Dr. Chow has a plan B. In which way, it is stressful to think that one scan can determine a number of outcomes.

On a different note, after school today the kids will be on vacation for a week! Yipee! turkey day is just around the corner......Marco is going to BBQ the turkey ......Um can't wait.
Pictures will follow .....

Marcus can now call himself the "Iron Chef" of making an awesome turkey. He has grilled, smoked, bbq, baked and deep fried a turkey. Can't imagine what he will think of next...By the way, the "practice turkey" you guys made last week was so yummy:) Thanks!!
