Last Thursday Adam had another routine blood draw. This time he did not need any transfusions, which means he’s on the upswing!
He’s been sleeping well and eating more. Hopefully he gains weight, since he’s plateaued the past couple months.
On Monday, March 26th, we have an appointment with our primary oncologist, then on Tuesday we have a consult with a surgeon, and potentially Adam may undergo a surgery on Wednesday to remove the primary tumor. This is based on the CT imaging that was done a couple weeks ago that showed that the tumor had begun to shrink, and his organs are returning to their normal positions. Since the last biopsy was unsuccessful, and eventually the surgery to remove the primary mass would have to be performed anyway, the doctors are recommending that we proceed with this now, so that hopefully we can have an accurate diagnosis soon.
After the surgery, Adam will have a few days to recover before beginning the next round of chemo. This coming round will be 3 back-to-back days of outpatient chemo.
For the time being… he’s home and happy 🙂
