yeah   yeah yeah yeah
Hello All, thought I would share with you our good news for a change with you!
I'm still doing the happy dance!!! yeah yeah yeah
Okay first of all I did just what was suggessted and compiled a notebook of questions to ask the Dr.. Wil had his CT AND BLOODWORK done on Thursday asked for his report before we left so we could compare to our last visit ,a little dissapointed as now they are converting them to cd's. Of course the only time I don't take my laptop. Okay, Okay, Dr. told us Friday, that the drugs they started Wil on in Dec. as our last resort is now working!!! No signs of cancer in lesions and they have remained stable for 3 months. He has been having some chest pains last few weeks and severe headaches, naseua ect. along with the weight loss but, Ecko showed normal heart. Dr. said that it could be anxiety and or side effects of the meds. they will monitor him on that.
As of where he stands right now Dr. say's stay on med's and keep your health up then NO transplant will be needed in this near future. He will need one but, not this year! Thank God!!! It has bought a little time for us to get the funding and or insurance.
His liver is fully cirrhotic stage 6 , just found out his Liver Enzymes, Alfa Protiens and plateletts are in normal range as far as the rest of the report it will be 2 weeks before we get them back.
The prayers are surely working. THANK YOU ALL!!!
Huggs and Smooches!
Well wishes to all! You are in thoughts and prayers!

Toni, that is indeed very good news!  It does point to what I've posted recently:  That blood work is not always indicative of what is going on in the liver; i.e., in Wil's case, the cirrhosis.  So glad to hear that the meds are working and no cancer is suspected!

That's great Toni! Say Hello to Will for us and tell him how happy we all are for him.

Funny thing is, Terry feels so bad from his meds that he doesn't feel like his cancer is gone.

Blessings to you & Will,

I know I am so tired of the stress.Thank God this roller coaster has slowed down a bit to where we can catch our breath for a moment.  I will keep posting and Praying for each and everyone! I also know we are not out of the woods and unfortunatley we will need that Transplant, but for now I feel like we have a little more time to get his affairs in order! Oh, and make wedding plans! I'm looking forward to dancing at his wedding! Oh, Oh, and maybe being a Grandma someday! 
Hope you all have a great fourth of July!!!
