Good news!  We learned this morning that the cancer has responded to Kris’ ICE chemotherapy regime.  Dr. Abhyankar called Kris this morning to tell her that the PET scan revealed that there was no new growth and the existing tumors had shrunk by 20%.  He went on to say that this is a very good response.


Kris will go through another round of chemo next week.  More scans and tests will follow.  We’ll know a lot more about the specific next steps and our schedule in the coming weeks.


Thank you all very much for your thoughts, prayers and encouragement.  Kris and our entire family appreciates your support!
