Good Evening All,
Tom McCarthy has shared an update on his Dad and we are happy to hear that Big Tom is doing better. He completed his Radiation Treatments the week after Easter and has thankfully been feeling much better, his appetite and energy returning. He had dropped some weight but there is some improvement there. Chemo still takes its’ toll and He skipped a few week because of Blood Work and such but has started up his Chemo Regimen and that will continue until June or July.
Mr McCarthy’s recent CT Scan was a relatively positive report. The Tumor itself seems to have responded to the treatments and started to break up. There is till scarring from past treatment which makes it difficult for the MDs to see clearly. The MDs will be doing a PET Scan in the next few weeks to identify any Cancer traces that may remain. All things considered, short of the MDs saying the Cancer has disappeared, Tom and the Family take this bit of good news that the treatment is having an effect and Big Tom is headng in the right direction. Please keep up the volume for this good man and his Family. They are so appreciative of our prayers.
Please raise the volume for Tom’s Mom. The MDs have been monitoring her closely for an abdominal Aortic Aneuryism that recently developed. The Family will be meeting with specialists to determine the course of treatment to repair it (stent or the like) or other options.
As Tom says, the McCarthy’s are keeping positive and we will do our part in keeping the volume up for these good folks. Thank you Tom. Thank you all. God Bless.
Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)
