Monday, April 14 - partial results

Whew! It's been a long day. Remember I told you that we have learned to "expect the upexpected"?? Well, today added more evidence to that statement.

We arrived at Sloan Kettering at 10:15 am and for various reasons didn't see the doctor until after 2:30 p.m. We have some answers but not all that we need so we have to stay another night to see the doctor tomorrow afternoon. He needs to have more consultation with the radiologist in the morning to determine the final results.

As you can probably figure out, the results were not good or we would already have a definitive answer. The cancer has grown in several areas but what they are not sure of yet is if there are new areas. That is what will be definitively determined tomorrow. If there are no "new" areas, then we can continue the clinical trial.

Ian is here for another few hours so he and Matthew have gone to the movies. Then, we are all going to supper together before Ian's train leaves. The three of us have enjoyed our time together this weekend.

Your love and prayers are so important to us. It's such a comfort knowing you are "there".
Love, Nancy

Hi Fay family,

I want you to know that I am thinking of you, all of you, and hoping against hope that you will get good news soon. I am so glad to read that despite the medical ordeals you are dealing with, that you are getting to enjoy some fun things in NY and making more family memories together! Your family is an example of strength and love to the rest of us!

Take care, you are in my thoughts,

Dawn (Mattke) Baker
