First Scan Results

We went today to receive the results from the first scan after chemo started. Tanta was back in town and it was great to have the extra support. Nanni was very very nervous, as were we all. So, on for the news....the good news is that the tumors have not grown at all. The downside is that they have not shrunk either. With pancreatic cancer the liklihood of shrinkage is low, but we were really hoping. It took us a while to appreciate that we were also luckier than a larger percentage who had tumors that fail to respond to chemo at all. Now we celebrate the news despite the fact that Nanni is feeling a little under the weather. Here are some photos outside of the chemo place of the sisters celebrating!
