Today I had an Xray, saw Dr Einhorn and had an Avastin infusion. The really good news is that Dr E says my Xray continues to show improvement.

Basically, that small speckles in my right lung (hyper-metabolic spots which could develop into tumors) are less than my last Xray - which was less the the Xray before that. And, my left lung remains clear. He seems happy with the progress and said that we will continue on the current course of treatment for now - unless a physical symptom indicates that we should change.

The pain and slight swelling in my feet is better today. It had become pretty rough over the weekend. Dr E says that we should be able to control the pain with a drug called neurontin but the numbness will probably remain for quite a while - perhaps until late December.

Other than that, all is well. Dr E said there is no issue with me going on the Galopagas trip in December. So...we will hope that Jill's news is similar tomorrow.
