I just want to keep you all updated.
Please do not feel you have to
leave me comments.
You are more than welcome to do that
but if you just want to come and read
that is perfectly okay.
I know EVERYONE is busy-
especially after the beginning of a
I just know y'all are dieting and exercising
and taking piano lessons
and learning to paint and...
That was LAST WEEK!
Now it is time for the
REAL NEW YEAR
to kick in!
So- I have discovered that this journey
into cancer is like being on a
The Cancer Carousel!
You go round and round and round-
sometimes feeling dizzy from all
the information thrown at you-
sometimes feeling a bit disoriented
after all the procedures needed
for effective treatment.
Here's where we are on
The Cancer Carousel..
We are on the innermost horses
trying to work our way out to the outer edge
so we can hop off this
As of yesterday, MyHero, John
had a feeding tube put in
(yes-that is a good thing)
and a port for chemo/blood work
and they did a few more biopsies on his throat.
Close your eyes here if you are squeamish.
to rig up a feeding
tube for him.
I found a great one on eBay
but he didn't seem too excited about it
so I let it go.
They are trying to find the primary source
of the cancer-thus the other biopsies.
IF they can pinpoint that,
the area of radiation will be smaller-
smaller area-less damage.
Starting a week from Monday
he will have 37 days of radiation in a row
Every Monday he will have chemo.
On the days he feels he can do so
he will go for physical therapy for
mild strength training.
The Cancer Carousel
continues to turn
and we are just waiting to grab the
GOLD RECOVERY RING
at the end.
It will be worth the ride
at the end!
Thank you ALL for your continued
prayers and support.
You're the best!
Love you guys!
