Today was a good day.

Judy’s chemo continues, and early signs are movement in the right direction. When oncologists smile the whole world sighs with relief.

She's had no more MRI/CT scanning but blood work today shows improved liver function and reduced levels of cancer markers, which is some damn good circumstantial evidence that the current option being used will continue to be used, which means more options in reserve for future. No physical change in lymph tumors, but you can’t have it all in life.

It was the best birthday present for me today, and also good portents for a whole bunch more birthdays for my girl.
