Fabulous Update

Dr. Bruggers, who is not our doctor, but doing a favor for Dr. Verma I believe, came in today to tell us that the PET scan results look very good. I didn't talk in detail to her about it, I am going to leave that to Nate this week to talk to Verma, but it seemed as though there were no spots on his spine and that tumor activity was slowing down. Cancer cells use more energy than normal cells and the PET scan picks up the activity of these cells. She said a couple of times that the activity is slowing down or in other words, the tumor is beginning to die, and that this was an optimistic scan! That is all I have for now and I will keep you updated on any further information. Thank you for all of your prayers, they are working! Spencer is continuing to kick cancer in the rear!
