We need a little bit of that around here :) Mom had an appointment with her oncologist today and learned the results of her lung biopsy. I don't understand all the cancer-marker stuff (I guess I should research it), but the doctor did a test looking for a certain unfavorable marker from the biopsy. The marker was NOT there! It was negative, which makes her prognosis better than if it had been there, and gives her a better chance of the hormone therapy working! We still have to fight this, but I guess now we see it as having a better chance of winning the fight. It might just mean containment, but as long as she's here and not in pain, I'm ok with containment!

Just wanted to share the good news!
