I had a CT-scan on Tuesday to measure my progress. It is not as detailed as something like a PET-scan, but it does provide some useful information. I had previously had a CT-scan maybe a month ago when I developed an infection, so they were able to compare the two to see how things have changed. The results showed that my lymph nodes are definitely improving. They had gone down since the previous CT-scan, and so the doctor was optimistic about the way things were going.

We will know a lot more in about two months though when I have a PET-scan. That is on May 14th, and it will tell us whether I really kicked the cancer's butt Chuck Norris style or whether the ENT will have to perform one more surgery.

I guess I better go watch some Walker Texas Ranger to learn sweet new moves!

Yeah Steve! Or should I say Chuck Norris? Better start planning your PET scan celebration meal!

That is so wonderful. It is great to hear that things are showing healing. I pray that your PET scan shows you are free and clear to continue healing. Time to definitely start planning a celebration. Keep up the wonderful attitude and loving life.

Hi Steve,

I have been anxiously awaiting your test results. I am so glad that they show healing. I do so pray that you have really licked your cancer and that you will soon be eating up a storm. May your PET scan results be good. God bless you. Keep on blogging.


Aunt Diane!

Give that cancer a round-house kick to the face. So happy that the ct scan came back and showed healing. I love you!

Good news, Steven! You got some fightin' Irish in ya from your Mom. Keep up the great attitude and motivation to feed your body with some appetizing but healthier food to continue on that healing path. That day is coming soon!
Love and Prayers...Aunt Elaine

Great to hear that it looks like things are improving. I hope the scan on the 14th is just as promising.

Since you studying Chuck Norris for moves, I will leave you with a little known fact about the man that is legend.

When Chuck Norris does a pushup, he isn’t lifting himself up, he’s pushing the Earth down.

Hey Moke -- Thinking about you. I still owe you a "What about Bob" viewing that I regret has taken so long. Sorry I've been distant, but know that you're always in my thoughts and prayers.
