The good news keeps on coming ... this afternoon Phil was moved from ICU to a private room in the Telemetry Unit where he will stay until doctors determine he is well enough to embark on his chemotherapy journey as an outpatient. Until then he will continue to be monitored by the ICU team.

Less than a week ago doctors were not optimistic. Thanks to good medicine and the strength of a young body, Phil's condition keeps improving, paving the way for chemotherapy to begin as soon as doctors are satisfied radiation has sufficiently relieved pressure limiting the function of his bile duct.

Onward and upward!
