Hi all, hope everyone is doing well. You are all in our prayers.
Well we had meeting with surgical oncologist yesterday. We were to find out if Scott was a candidate for the Intraoperative Peritoneal Chemo treatments (same as Fitlisa). He is not. His cancer is spreading at a rapid rate. They said to go in now would only make things worse. He has to consider is quality of life. Least to say we are devastated. Scott just turned 43 last week. We spent the rest of the day together after his appointment and, it was weird but we had a great day! We talked and laughed like we did when we were dating. Then we would stop and look at each other and say "are we crazy"!! It was like we were in denial, but I'm glad we had a nice day. Did normal things...got the car fixed, got our taxes done, went to lunch. It was really hard when we went home with the kids. Scott was so good with them...playing and laughing and we watched Shark Tales. Then after they went to bed, that's when it hit us. We started thinking about all the things we have to do. It's going to be a rough ride. I'm sorry I'm rambling, just a million thoughts going through my head.
We will discuss other options with his oncologist this week. We may be able to try another round of chemo to prolong, but we know it's not for cure. He wants to look into the "all natural route" too.
I'm sorry to bring everyone down. You all have been great. This discussion board has been my release as well as my source of information. God Bless you all.
