      At my appointment last week, my doctor said my latest CT scans were better than stable… He said the nodule in my lung is so much less conspicuous that it is opaque and hardly noticeable… Confident the cancer is gone, and the same goes for the cancer that was in nodes in my mesenteric bowel… The nodes are all back to normal size if not even a bit smaller than normal. He said this was an excellent scan and that he is confident in saying there is no evidence of disease! 

      So the plan is to continue on nivo, complete the two years (March 2017!). Some have said the full two years isn't necessary, but if it helps with a durable, longer lasting response, I certainly don't mind the treatments! I still work 40 hours/week, and live my life with minimal side effects! 

      Needless to say, I couldn't be happier right now! I'm so thrilled… Christmas came early for me this year!

      On a side note, I will be participating in the Advocacy and Summit Hill day for the MRF in March. Will I have the pleasure of meeting any of you in DC in March?
