No News Is at Least Not Bad News

CT Scan

It’s often been said that “no news is good news.” You’ve had no word from us in a while regarding Matt’s health situation. And yes, it’s been good. Well, at least not bad.

Matt continues to be the healthiest looking sick man I’ve ever met. We continue to be encouraged at his lack of pain, his sufficient energy level, and the fact that he’s still preaching every Sunday. Despite CT scans that have shown continued growth, Matt has continued to feel and look really good.

Matt continues on the chemotherapy treatment which involves popping a daily pill. We’re thankful for insurance since, without it, each precious pill would cost us $250! The goal of this chemotherapy is not to shrink the tumors, but to prevent them from further growth, slowing the progression of the metastasized tumors on the liver, keeping liver failure at bay.

Monday is his next CT scan, with a follow-up appointment on Wednesday for the results. This scan will determine whether the chemo is in fact preventing the tumors from continuing to grow or not. It will determine whether he continues with the chemotherapy or not.
