I wouldn't be either, given what you've said. Very sad.
sour, that's the big problem with cancer. A very few can actually beat it, but far too many beat it, only to discover years later that it's back with a vengeance. That has been my experience, and of the majority of survivors. When mine came back, it had also metastasized to my lungs, and bones. Yes, I have bone mets. While none of it is any good, the bone mets are usually the bigger threat. I hope his oncologist gives him the same chemo he went through before, since it was successful, then starts him on Zometa to help with the bone mets. Inhibitors may help too. I've managed to squeeze out an extra year so far.
This is what scares the peewaddin’ outta me for Ashley. She’s resuming a childhood and I’d hate for that to change.
@getaclue apparently he tolerates or at least tolerated chemotherapy very well. His attitude is strong, but he is very much a realist, and this is the first that he has started planning for the 'what if or when'.
Don't dwell on that idea Blooie! Let's just plan for her to be one of those that beats it totally the first time.
I'm sorry to read this, Sour. But good for you for giving him something to hang onto, even if he is being realistic. You just never know.
How fun for them and you! I'm going to tuck these ideas away and hopefully be able to retrieve them when my grands are older.
That sounds like a bad one!
I have read that chewing tobacco and cigars are bad for that type of cancer
I am hoping you get more years too!
On an upbeat note...
My brother-in-law has started chemo. (Insurance finally got in order)... so far so good.
And he did get a detailed scan to check for mets, and they didn't see any.
Which sure is nice.... because they have a bunch of kids that I really do not want to be responsible for....
That's very good news, Al.
