Cartilage Growth made my day.

My dad had a doc appointment.....and as you might of guessed we got good news!!! Let me give a little bit of background. Most should know my dad has terminal lung cancer. Well he also has a huge tumor on his neck. Not only was {has shrunk a bit from treatment} it huge, but it had destroyed most of the bone, cartilage, and vertebrates that hold your neck and head together {sorry for the graphic description}. The doc said using alot more medical terms than I will ever know, that basically the little thread that was holding everything together could...well....break at any moment and we all know what that would mean.
This finding came a day after his cancer diagnoses.....needless to say we were all a bit overwhelmed....and scared. My dad had to wear a neck brace everyday ALL day and night and couldn't drive {he was still working at a job he had been at for over 20 yrs. that he LOVES}. But then, yesterday he as I already told you had a doc appointment and the CT scan on his neck showed cartilage growth where the doctor had said there was barely nothing holding his head and neck together. Hooray!!! I never thought I would be soooo happy in my life for cartilage growth. Just to understand my excitement a bit more according to the doc new growth was not even an option, but it happened! So what does this mean???? No more brace, he can drive, cleared to go back to work!!!!!!!!! And as for the cancer.....right now the chemo did its job and it is not spreading just dormant for right now hopefully it stays that way for a while. Anyways, I am just so excited we have been waiting for some kind of good news. And, it makes so very happy to know that my dad can be comfortable again, drive again, and go back to a job he loves. I hope everyone has a fantastic day!!!
