Update with oncologist
423 Posts

We just got off a phone meeting with the oncologist and here's what we know : I have 50 ( I know right ? ) tumors in my right lung and my liver has pretty much been taken over. I have no new tumors on my brain but they have grown / swelled which is pushing harder on the nerve to my voice. All the cancer is growing very fast.

Now here's something else I know. My appetite is back and I'm able to eat again ! I feel great in the strength department. And even if he told me not to waste time but get the important stuff done, oh nay nay ! Everything important to me is God and my Sweet Baboo. Doc is unaware that I have an ace up my sleeve and that's God.

Dave58‍ , I rather suspect that you already have the “important stuff” in order. Still, I’m sorry to hear that that time is here.

I, too, am glad to hear your appetite is back, and hope you have many, many fabulous meals!

@NickytheCanuck Thanks, but it's only by the loving grace of God that I'm able to function at all. I praise God for all of the blessings He has give us over the years.

I saw this and immediately thought of you. Your posts are SO important, courageous and really, really helpful. You speak freely of the things many would not - it helps us all. Thank you.

Your posts speak of the different ways we live and die - physically, emotionally, spiritually….For all there is a time when our bodies will die, yet our legacy will live on in the hearts of our loved ones and spiritually in the ways we believe .

A doctor can call and tell us the change in our cancer, this does not change in the love of our community. Thank you.
