Hmmmmm where to begin. Well, first of all, our scans were great. Nothing on them. However, our pathology from the surgery could have been better. The margins were clear, but close. The tumor was more viable than they would have liked...and they would have liked it have all been dead. Therefore, Layne has been given clean up chemo. It's going to be epirubicin, xeloda (unless insurance refuses that) and oxaliplatin. Of course, the oxy we know well but the others will be new to us. He'll do three rounds. (9 weeks total)
Though I asked God for clean up chemo, wow, I wanted them to offer it only due to the nodes, I had no idea of the other things. BUT it's ok, because I feel like God is providing all that Layne needs. The doc was amazed at him today, and laughed and laughed as Layne answered questions...at how well he is eating down to how much is he exercising. The surgeon's nurse asked him to be a mentor, and of course we said YES YES YES...
We got to meet Ants and his wife (oh what WONDERFUL PEOPLE) and tomorrow, we hope to have lunch with Sally and her hubby--we were to see them twice today and of course, you know doc appts...that did not work out.
Couldn't get the net to work on my laptop at the hospital and I declare, everyone wanted to log in at the machines at the hospital today. Ugh.
Thinking and praying for all of you ...
