Focused Positive Energy Beam Therapy

Tuesday is a big day for us. Dante will be undergoing a mid-course CT Scan, Bone Scan, and an Alpha-Fetoprotein count.

We are very pleased to report that according to his protocol, we are at the halfway point in his chemotherapy treatment. He has been responding very well to the chemo, and the tumors have visibly shrunk, but as many of you know, Dante started with alot of disease in his body and the growth was aggressive.
There is still much that could go awry. We are very encouraged by the outward signs of his treatment; shrunken masses, little ill-effects from chemo, no infections, not so bad of a haircut....

Tomorrow we will get a peek into the inward signs of his treatment. We will see where the tumors are, and how much is left. Additionally, with the Alpha-Fetoprotein count we will get some clue as to how "healthy" the tumor itself is. Theoretically, the tumors could be shrinking in size, but still producing plenty of AFP. This would not be a good result. We want to see big reductions in that AFP count, because that signals tumor death, and that would be a good result.

As many of you know, we have been using melting ice cream as a metaphor for his treatment. This is something that anyone can visualize and meditate on. Tomorrow, Tuesday the 10th, at 1pm, Dante will go in for his CT scan. We would like everyone, if they can manage a few minutes, to focus all their positive energies and thoughts on a big vat of melting ice cream evaporating away in the mid-day sun.



If you pray, feel free.
If you meditate, please do.
If you contemplate the mysteries of the universe inside the core of an apple, then take big bites and chew often.

Whatever method you prefer to use to tap into the Contiguous Energy of the Cosmos, please join us in focusing all that positive energy into the depths of our little boy, as we cross into 2nd half of our journey.

Thank you,
Chris & Jen

PS: By the way, Carina will be 3 months old tomorrow!
