MRI results Today

Today we went to Jefferson University Hospital in Philly for an Avastin (chemotherapy) infusion, a MRI and a meeting with my oncologist. The MRI showed a continued stable condition of the tumor and Dr Glass pointed out an area where there used to be tumor and there is no more. I will continue on a 3-week schedule of the Avastin, continue to check with MRIs and then possibly shift to every 4 weeks if progress continues ok with the Avastin treatments. I am hoping that my other protocols will aid in shrinking the tumor. Anyone inteerested in coming to a "Going Away Tumor Party"?

In addition to Avastin, I also do vitamin C infusions (50,000 mg); mistletoe extract, subcutaneous injection every 3 days, Artimix tablets, treatments to get rid of Epstein Bar virus and Ccitomegalovirus. CMV is a major contributor to my type of brain tumor (Glioblastoma multiforme stage 4). 

Dr. Glass is also using my MRI images for a lecture tonight. I didn't realize my brain was so interesting .... no comments from the peanut gallery.

(Psalms 118:24)  This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Your brain is fascinating! (sorry, peanut gallery couldn't resist). I'm celebrating and praying always.

Prayers ongoing!

Good to hear this report. Isn't it interesting how God is using everthing together for good in and through your journey of trusting Him through all of your health issues!?!
