The doc just said on the phone, "everything seems to be shrinking." He'll have the %'s once the radiologists look at it more in the next few days.

"I was in the pool! I was in the pool!"
"Yes. Significant shrinkage!"
"Elaine! Do women know about shrinkage?"
"What do you mean, like laundry?"
"Like when a man goes swimming... afterwards..."
"It shrinks?"
"Like a frightened turtle!"
"Why does it shrink?"
"It just does."
"I don't know how you guys walk around with those things."
"See, look at this. Rachel, my T-shirt shrunk. It used to be much bigger, and now it shrunk. You see, that's what water does. It shrinks things."
"Really? Tell us more, Mr. Science."

Seriously, that's GREAT news, Shawn! Keep smiling!

We have been in the Bahamas for a week with no internet... we had our fingers crossed and were thinking of you! We flew back to NYC this afternoon sad to face the snow and cold after saying good-bye to 80 degree temps and sun. You have given us the best news that could possibly make us smile after having to leave all of that sun and sand behind!


Oh- and we picked up the box on the day before we left! Thanks for the surprise! :) Go Hoos!!!

Gina and Bill

badda BING!

That's such encouraging news...mind over matter works every time!!!:)

Of course, you just had to do it the hard way with all the chemo and needles and tests and so on...typical, Shawn...absolutely typical!:)

The shots...hmmm, think of your belly as a bunch of sour grapes - plaster 'you-know-who's' face on it as a big, old 'target'...and go for it! It will really be enjoyable after awhile! LOL:) ...groaning...

What's a good time for home visits on weekends?
