Jen went to her PET scan results meeting with Dr. Spira today.  While we were both hoping for complete remission, unfortunately there is still some active tumor cells in a small region near the bottom of the tumor.  However, Dr. Spira said that this is what he expected, and that it is good news that the tumor has shrunk about 80%, and that the amount of living cancer cells is much, much smaller than it was.  The chemo is doing its work, and Dr. Spira said he was encouraged by Jen’s progress.

So it wasn’t the news we wanted, but it’s the best news that we could reasonably get given the situation.  So yay!
