And there's more good news...

Glen received a call today from Dr. Yom. She said that there was no reason for him to come in tomorrow because the Tumor Board (the head radiologist had returned) agreed that there was no reason for surgery at this time!!!!!! Glen requested that he have a PET scan 12 weeks after treatment (late November) so he can be sure that he has that clean bill of health that he's been working so hard to achieve.

So...while Glen is not going in to see Dr. Yom tomorrow to hear about the tumor board recommendation, he is going in to see her to discuss the throat pain he is experiencing. He has a constant sore throat. (He says this word "sore" does not adequately describe the pain.) The only thing I can compare it to is a really bad case of strep throat that won't go away. So he's going in to see her tomorrow to discuss his pain management options. He's thinking that as the mucous dissipates, the throat is more exposed and it just will take time for it to heal, but in the meantime he's trying to get back to work and his life and the pain is very wearing on him. "It's just the next phase of the recovery" according to Glen...oh my, he's becoming so patient!

So...this too shall pass, but in the meantime, let's celebrate the big victories!

Thanks to all!
