Journal entry by Julie Thorleifson

More good news after my last PeT Scan on September 30.  The imaging shows that the lesion on my rib is decreasing.  YAY!!  My immunotherapy therapy has been changed to once every 4 weeks rather than every 2.  Same dose. I find that my energy level seems to be increasing as I am able to see dust or mess on a surface and actually be able to clean it off.  It’s been a long time since I have been able to muster the energy for that!  I’m meeting with my radiation oncologist soon to talk to her about zapping the lesion on my rib. 
My daughter-in-law, April, delivered a healthy, premature baby on August 19, Peter Joseph, who is just the JOY of our family’s life.  He should be coming home at the end of this week and Dean and I will be all COVID free to meet him, soon. 💕
Blessings and Great Gratitude to all of you.  Your prayers and well wishes carry me ❤️
