Chemo Starts Tomorrow

Today we got the word that doctors are ready to start chemo tomorrow, so we're checking back in tomorrow. Things are starting to move then. 

Jack had a full body scan today, to establish a baseline. This is a new type of a scan method which the doctors hope can help them better judge chemotherapy effectiveness. 

Chemo can have adverse effects on hearing, so a hearing test is scheduled for tomorrow, and then chemo treatment over the next five days. He may be released on Tuesday, or Wednesday for sure. 

Here he is watching Tom and Jerry while being scanned:

He was very still for the scan, so techs took advantage of it, and got a couple of very good scans. 

Today I'm grateful for:
- continued support from friends and coworkers
- that Jack has been eating and you know... pooping well
- access to advanced technology that helps us all live healthier lives


  1. What a brave young man, Jack is!! I continue to keep him in my thoughts and prayers, as he goes through this journey and battle. Thank you, Tibor for sharing his status, and updates with all of us.

  2. Now there's a tough guy! Hang in there, Jack. Know that your Dad's coworkers are all rooting for you!
