We received a call from one of Joel’s nurses this afternoon, while the official report isn’t back, they did call the Pathologist (Doctor who looks at the cells in the spinal fluid)
The pathologist said that they could find no sign of cancer cells in his fluid!!!
This is a huge relief for me as we are now almost 3 months out from radiation treatment and almost 4 months out from the palliative chemo (chemo not intended to be curative) and almost 5 months out from when they told us Joel was terminal and then receiving the clear lumbar puncture.
All this to say that there is no sign of cancer in Joel! Still! Next MRI in two months.
