Pathology Report

Monday Garrett had an appointment with his Oncologist in Twin before his Chemo treatment. The doctor gave them the pathology report from the testicle that G had removed last week.

Drum roll please......

The tumor is now just a dead tumor with no more cancer.

This is SUPER news. The doctors kept telling us that there are two types of tumors. The kind that the Chemo doesn't penetrate and then kind that Chemo does. They always remove the tumor just to be safe...why take the risk....but apparently the Chemo is working. He started round 3 on Monday. He is only scheduled for 4 rounds. Once they are finished they will do another CT scan to see if the tumors in his lungs and stuff have "melted" away like they had anticipated. This news that the original tumor has been cleared of cancer is such a good indication.

If eveything keeps going like they plan, Garrett could be Cancer Free by July!!! Keep praying that things keep going textbook.
