We had a great day yesterday.  Jim saw Dr. Khan, his oncologist, to get the report of the CT scan he had last Monday.  Dr. K told him that he got a call from the radiologist who read the new scan, comparing it to the ones done in late Jan., who wondered if Jim was recovering all right from his surgery!. In other words, his thyroid tumor has shrunk so much, it looks as if it had been surgically removed!. The other tumors, while still visible, are smaller too.. He has much more energy and is able to do just about anything he wants, gardening, lawnmowing, etc.. Thank you Sutent!. He will start his third round this Thursday, and side effects remain very mild, and go away completely when he's off the drug, which reportedly cuts off the tumor's blood supply.. We are so grateful that we learned of this great drug from Dr. Mittal at the Cleveland Clinic
