    Whew!! Ben's latest Pet Scan was a-ok!

    As a recap..dx July 09 just before his 21st birthday, melanoma on tip of tongue. WLE and SNB showed it had spread to one node. Right neck dissection, 8/09 then a year of interferon. July's pet showed 3 suspicious spots which the doctor today said had either disappeard or diminished enought that were not significant.

    And I am one relieved mom!

    Thanks as always for the amazing support here

        YAY! Thinking about you today!

        Josiah's nodes were clear! They are suggesting Interferon for the year. Any thoughts, having had your son go through that treatment? I know it's not foolproof, but better than nothing?

        Congrats again!
