Steve,
I missed this post and just now saw it. I have never had to face what you and your wife are going thru so I think it would be fair to say unless someone has walked in your shoes, they would not have a clue. The outpouring of thoughts and prayers from this site is amazing, a great group for sure.
I will keep you in my thoughts and hope for continued improvement.
Tom.

Hello all!
Other than a few small postings, I haven't been around much. Well, I wanted to post an update to Melissa's fight.
I wont have the entire story for about another week, but this is what we know as of this past Monday. The good news is, there has been no spreading of any cancer!! Her body and brain scans both came back clean!! In her words, Woo Hoo!!! And the original tumor which started out at about 50 millimeters (2"), is now down to only 15 millimeters (5/8").
The fly in the ointment is that we need one more test. This test is to tell us if this remaining 15 mm is dead, or live tumor. If dead, well that would be the greatest news and this would mean that she is clear and we can go live our lives until we test again in 3 months. If it is still live tumor, well then for the first time the Dr. put surgery on the table. The issue here is that the tumor is in a difficult place for surgery. Our Oncologist is not a surgeon so I can't speak on the specific issues and potentials with this. Lets just hope it dead and we wont have to worry about it.
On the less serious side, her hair is about gone and that is just killing her. But we will get through that!!
Well that's it for now. I'll post again here next week after we get an answer.

Thanks again for all the thoughts and prayers!!! Our God is an amazing God and I my level of thanks is beyond words!!

Steve

Well, I'm not going to write a big deal here in this update. Oldgas is not really the place for all this.
Bottom line, we've completed our first batch of testing, and it wasn't good. The cancer has spread some and the original tumor, although much smaller, is still there. After what they hit her with, the Doctors are completely shocked!! It's not even worth putting to words how I feel. How Melissa feels. Got the news just Monday. So it's only been a short time to digest this. We're trying to figure out in our hearts how to just give it to God and enjoy life with this.
We start new treatments next week.
Like I said, Oldgas isn't really the place for all this and other than a few of you, I've never even met any of you so no need to cry on all your shoulders. So I doubt I'll post any further updates after this.
There are a few of you that I talk to in PM's, of course feel free to write any time!!! That goes for anyone really!!
It's going to be a tough go. Not really sure what to even feel.
I truly thank you all for the support and prayers!! It truly has gone a long way in helping get through this !!!
I guess God has his plans and we have ours. Not always an easy pill to swallow.
