Stu update

Good news! Well, kind of.

The good news is that the cancer is losing. The doc went over Stu's scans, CAT scans showed that yes, the cancer was still there in the bones, but not spread elsewhere and the prostate tumor is gone; bone scans show that bone is healing as cancer disappears from the bone.

The flip side of that is that the chemo is winning. Unfortunately, chemo is not necessarily -all- targeted, so now Stu has to see a bunch of other docs like cardiologists and orthopedists to make sure that other systems don't break down due to the chemo.

But this is the best we could have expected, so party time!
