CT, all clear! AFP 2.1

We get to schedule taking out her port. THIS is a HUGE milestone. The doctors get really excited when they talk about taking out a port, its REALLY GREAT NEWS! She's officially done with all treatments and we won't need to sedate her until they take her port out. They'll also administer a BAER hearing test to see how much hearing she's lost. The doctor said it would be unusual for her to have lost conversational hearing with 4 rounds of chemo but Audiology wants to make sure if she does have loss, they catch it quickly. If she does have some, it should only be high frequency loss i.e. pf, s, th, k, type sounds. We've got our fingers crossed. - April
