Update Pete

Postby hart2hart » Sat Mar 17, 2018 10:48 am

Pete saw Dr Kemeny Wednesday. Clear scan, Cea normal. He has just graduated
now to 6 month scans. Pump hopefully removed In December. So grateful
for ALL at Sloan.....including the doorman! Our lives are full and very optimistic for the future. The biggest advice we received was to get several opinions to see what
Oncologist/Surgeon fits what your beliefs/expectations are. Keep being tenacious, ask a ton of questions and keep fighting!
