We met with Dr Raval today (Misty’s Neuro-Oncologist) and reviewed her MRI. Seems that the cancer grew a small bit from last months scan. Basically, if she weren’t on any treatment, the cancer would grow very significantly in a month (hence the “stage IV” moniker) – SO, the small amount of growth means that the drugs are kinda working…but not quite. In this game, “kinda” doesn’t really buy you much. So, starting tomorrow, we are increasing the dose on both of her drugs. Hopefully these new dosages will make nexts months results a little more encouraging.
I wish I had better news. But hey, this is where faith is grown, right?
