Ok so she is in the rare blood donor program and has to carry a card now. The Dr said of all the antigens she had to end up with this one although it's not the rarest it is extremely rare. Go figure right!! She had a recital bleed the other night and we were thinking a hemorrhoid burst (sorry so explicit) but he said no most likely not and is sending her to a proctologist and will most likely get a Colonoscopy. She has been having an upset stomach and abdominal pain for about 2 to 3 weeks now. Poor girl has had sooooo many procedures in the last 6 months and none were even slightly pleasant. He also mentioned sending her to another gyno/onc but in Syracuse NY this time not Johns Hopkins. She is very worried that its in her colon as she has thought that for awhile now but CT's come in clear except for the two residual tumors left. Probably leaving some things out but my mind is in over load right now.

Prayer to you all

Dave & Tina VG

I know what your saying my mind is on overload. Take it one day at a time, get through today and maybe tomorrow will be better. God bless you both, you will get through this. Kathy

I live outside of Syracuse, NY and wondering if you're being sent to see my ONC. I hope you both can find some relief very soon.

Thanks so much for all the comments. There are many here that are worse off than my wife and I'm not sure how you teal warriors do it. I used to be able to handle what life threw my way but these days phew... its getting tougher and I'm not the one with the cancer. Its hard to fathom what my wife and all of you are going through. My grandmother used to say you never know what a person is going through until you've walked 10 miles in there shoes. Man was she right. Maria he did not give a name just that she is a gyn/onc surgeon. I will get back to you when he gives us a name. Val hope all is well and your plan gave you some relief for the chemo side effects

I'm sure 'overload' is putting it mildly. I'm holding the good thoughts that this recent development is due to those nasty hemorrhoids. I'm sure Tina is so fatigued from all these procedures, but those CT results are encouraging.

My prayers and hugs go to both of you for continued strength. Thank you so much for keeping us up-to-date, Dave. I hope that you and Tina have a hobby/favorite things to do to take time out of this hectic schedule and relax and just enjoy the moment, and regain some emotional and physical strength.

(((HUGS))) and Prayers,
Monika

It went up 2 points and she is freaking out big time. I told her it could very that much from test to test. Shes not buying it. And of course I'm at work wishing i was at home to console her. As you can imagine I miss a lot of time now and my boss is real good about it but I'm sure there's a limit to it as well.

Anyone in Tina's position would surely feel the anxiety, even for 2 points. And I know it's difficult to be away from her during those anxious moments. I'm sure she'll be comforted when you are with her. I can also imagine the strain regarding your job. I hope your boss continues to be understanding.

Tell Tina I'm thinking of her. Sure wish she would visit us, but I understand if she's not interested or not up to it.

So, sending hugs and prayers, as always.
