|Before all the boats arrive. Tomorrow the Derby arm should be full.|
So today we went to see Ian's consultant. The good news is that the tumour is stable. No shrinkage but no regrowth either. He talked about us having our chemo holiday in June. I asked if he knew how long we would get. His reply- how long is a piece of string. If Ian and I read into this correctly, then we can assume that he will be stopping Ian's chemo after the next MRI scan and giving Ian at least three months off, or at least until the next scan in September. If it then appears to be growing again we will be back to square one with chemo resuming again. All in all we came away knowing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel at last. Roll on June.
