Hi all,

Staying positive , the challenge of the day...

Talked to docs and now we have another plan. I am stopping the newest med, because of the negative effect on my heart. My BP is again becoming unstable and very high, even with 2 meds to control it. With the enlarged heart they felt like the risk is to high. I have to agree with them on that. But this leaves me back to only taking high dose daily meds and bp meds and pain meds. When I get to Texas and have the remaining scans and tests, we will see where I stand. He is hoping that the lung tumor is stable and that the spleen has remained the same or smaller and no tx will be needed.
If I do need tx, thats where things become difficult.
So for now, I wait some more.
Peaceful healing

Hi John,

I have to tell you that I was lucky enough to read your post this afternoon, before they flagged it and removed "key" words. I was telling my hubby just yesterday, that you seem so much like him. The way you say it like it is and of course your humor. My hubbys is a bit out there if you know what I mean.

On another note, no one ever has said that I was a hero or close to a hero or any such thing. You touched my heart... Thanks...

As far as being strong, well I sure don't feel very strong. I feel like I am waking up, breathing, going to sleep and repeating. Maybe toss in a little life to the mix every now and then. We do what we got to do. You would do no less. We are surviving...

And, yes this is a very hard A$$ journey. Do I cry, sometimes. Do I great depressed, you bet. Do I go on, EVERYDAY..

Peaceful healing, John
