Hi my friends, fellow-cancer fighters, and readers:
It has taken me a full three days to get through my first round of chemotherapy. Not to mention the surgery in which my chemo port was installed and also when my bone marrow biopsy was done.
I still feel a little loopy but I wanted to go ahead and send out an update!
So there's some good news, and some bad news.
The good news, is that the cancer has not spread throughout my body!
However, the bad news is that the cancer had spread to my lungs. There are multiple small tumors, and one large tumor in my lungs. This is another blow from the back- mainly because the PET scan seemed to show that the cancer was localized. Sadly, that is not the truth.
The gameplan from this new finding is going to entail more intense chemo and radiation. Also, at the last 3 month period, my body will be in the hospital for a whole month to severely attack the remaining cancer.
Please pray for my family and I. We have a year-long battle ahead, and
"bad news" never helps.
All I can rest in, is that God knew this was going to spread far before any of us.
Thanks Again! :)
