Abraxane/Avastin seems to be working. Although I have not had avastin in 4 weeks, that's another story.

After 3 cycles, the MRI shows "slight decrease in size of lesions" I think it was more than slight. One lesion was 2.8 cm and is down to 1.2 cm, the other was 1.5 cm and is down to .8 cm. Also noted "No new lesions are identified." Those 2 sentences made my day!!

I also had RFA in Sept 2006, so it says that that area is not significantly changed.

Although I am very happy to receive this news, I am afraid to share it with too many people because of the ups and downs of this disease. Anyway, I am very very happy for the moment!!!

I sure hope that some of you ladies will want to share NED with me some time in the near future!

Positive thoughts going out to all!!

Linda, share that news. Let EVERYONE be happy for you too so they can keep those NED prayers going....It means too much not to share it. I remember celebrating everytime mom got good news. It was a wonderful feeling.

I am so happy for you! Dianne
