    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Recently started Folfiri, and my first 2 cycles have gone surprisingly smoothly. However, I'm not up to full dosage yet, and they haven't added the Avastin. Round 3 starts tomorrow.

    Oh No (Cancer has spread/Metastasized): Spots in the lung; I'm no longer operable. I'm now in for long-term chemo. No polite words can express my feelings.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): Surgery to remove the latest new met from my appendix cancer; went more easily than I could ever have anticipated, despite being open (laparatomy.) Recovery is going extremely well

    I finally saw my scan reports from MSK (CT and MRI). I am thrilled that both show everything clean except for the slight growth in my tumor (still only about an inch in the largest dimension). No questionable spots anywhere else! Maybe this will be the end of the cancer!

    My surgeon told me the only changes were in the tumor size, but it was nice to see the reports and read all the details. There was nothing in the report that "should be monitored", though I'll still have regular scans.

    WHEEEEEE!
