Other than being a very long day, it was a better day than we had expected. We can chalk it up to the Avastin treatment plan, the diet or the fresh Muskoka air…hopefully a combination of each. While today’s news hasn’t translated into visible improvements for Rene, it was again better than we had expected. Her tumors are all smaller in size (except for one) and the swelling on her brain is down dramatically. Both of these results are what you would hope to see with Avastin treatment but in the eyes of the Dr, her reaction was more than he expected for this visit.
Plan for coming weeks will comprise of continued Avastin, continued diet plan of Budwig, Green Juice and a red juice. We will also get her back in the routine of acupuncture and begin at home physical therapy to try to improve her mobility.
After the MRI and visit with Neuro team, she had round 5 of Avastin – 5.5 hours in the hospital was long enough so she had a good nap in the afternoon and we have had a relaxing evening. I need to get on the computer and get some work done, Rene has a puzzle to finish.
Thank you (I know, getting repetitive) for your well wishes on these tough days. We will chalk today up as a victory and as Step 1 on our way to Step 2.
Rest well everyone.
