I just got off the phone with Diane. She said that Cody's doctor called her. Keep in mind that this is after Diane called the doctor up in NY. She said that the surgeon and the liver specialist are looking at Cody's x-rays and deciding whether they are going to remove the tumor now or try to shrink it more before the operation. So, in the next few days we will find out and until then we get to enjoy life. No matter what is next we won't do anything until next week. This will give Cody some much needed down time. They don't feel that the cancer will recover in this amount of time. But, the doctors do say that the next chemo no matter if it is before or after the surgery will be a different mix. They feel that the cancer will start becoming resistant to the mix he has had the last two times.
He is so funny. When he likes something to eat, he will eat it everyday until he is tired of it. He is now on a celery w/cream cheese and garlic salt kick. He has eaten half a stalk today.. :D
Now a little self inflicted abuse. Many of my running friends know that I am having a very hard time finding me time. It just goes with the territory. Between being in the hospital most of the time and going through the Christmas holidays I have gained 11 pounds. I have no willpower and I'm not burning the calories that I was burning while marathon training. Willpower was not much of a problem while running because I was so focused on the task at hand. Now the task is different and eating is my comfort. I hope I don't explode before this is over... :(
