Not 100% good news

I know a lot of you are waiting to hear how things went with my scan.  The doc explained that overall, there was about a 20% growth of the existing tumors in my lungs.  Nothing new popped up.  He suspects that my body is reacting positively to the Avastin/FOLFOX.  While I was on vacation, I wasn't getting chemo, so it's possible the tumors had a party in my lungs.  If I go back on the chemo, that might stop the party, so he would like me to do three more cycles and then scan again.  That's the plan.

20% sounded like a really lot to me, but we're talking growth like a 1.7cm tumor now being a 1.8cm tumor.  The doc said I'm at a borderline place where we could either keep using what we're using or switch to something else. 

My feelings are all mixed up about this right now.  And I just got home from chemo, so I'm tired.  So I'll be going to rest now. 

Prayers welcome.
