I just spoke to the doctor...

Dr. Shad was just in checking Cody. She gave us some good news. Not only is Cody's liver enzymes falling but his LDH numbers are getting higher. When these numbers get higher during chemo it indicates the tumor is breaking down. Yay! With a little kicking and screaming she was also able to feel his tummy and check his liver. It shows that the tumor is shrinking. I'm guardedly optimistic at this point. This is definitely what we want to see.
