Since returning home from the seminary, my blood counts have also gotten better, and I am no longer "immuno-deficient."
I have chosen to remain on the daily low-dose chemotherapy. I don't have many side effects from it and it seems to be doing the trick, so why not! There is some concern about long-term effects of chemotherapy (causing secondary cancers due to long-term exposure), so I'll probably stop taking it around September or October. At that time, I'll have MRIs every few weeks to monitor the tumor. If it starts to grow again, I can begin the chemo again with no problem.
So for now, please keep praying for me. My MRIs have been extended to 3 months between appointments because I have been stable for so long and changes aren't expected. I should go back for another MRI at the end of May/beginning of June.
Thanks for your prayers!
