This all happened so fast. We are back at Stanford Cancer Center. It is beautiful, n'est pas? (all I remember of my high school French...haha). Today Jud has Pet Scans, Cat Scans and blood work. Tomorrow morning, we will meet with the cancer radiologist (the very kind Dr. Koong, aka Doogie Hauser. Why do all these experts look like they are thirty-five?) Tomorrow after noon, the Tumor Board will meet and take a look at his results together. I like the fact they have this board, that not only one but many doctors will be looking at the results. They are also evaluated by the Johns Hopkins Tumor Board and the Sloan Kettering Tumor Board, so we have the advantage of two more good centers looking at his test data. They will be primarily to see if it would now be possible to do surgery (we hope and pray) and if he has any new metastases (cancer) elsewhere in his body (we hope and pray not) .
More meetings, after that, and I will share some picture of the inside of the center. They do all they can to make it pleasing, calming and beautiful. There is some lovely art in there!
Until then, we will be waiting and doing lots of praying and deep breathing.
Huge thanks to all of you for your wonderful support. Truly, you have done so much to make this all manageable.
