First, you cry. Then, eat ice cream. Now I'm ready to fight. Doctor called about 5 p.m. Biopsy is positive for cancer. He (and team) want to be aggressive, and I am in agreement. I have the appointment with the opthamologist tomorrow afternoon, another appt with vascular surgeon (skin flap) Tuesday and pre op and probably surgery on Thursday. I will loose my right eye and possibly some of my cheek. Followed by radiation and I will be asking about chemo--I have never had chemo with my previous 2 rounds. I will be leaving tomorrow around noon and just stay in the San Francisco Bay Area (remember John, I'm on the left coast!) with my sister and her family. I have wonderful support from family and friends and my husband is a most excellent caregiver. I will update when I can and I will have my sister update after surgery. Thank you so much for prayers, support and friendship. So glad I found this site after my first treatment.

The phrase "silent scream" comes to mind. So sorry it's come to this. I'm glad to hear surgery is soon, though. One of the things that really bothered me during the early part of my fight is that I was unable to have surgery to just cut it out.

Hope it goes well.

KTeacher,

I am sorry to hear this news, but I am hoping round three will find you triumphant over this monster.

You were one of my fellow warriors that responded to my first post and I am grateful for the unconditional support and affection I felt from each of you.

I hope your ride is gentle as it can be.

Best,

Matt

Sorry to hear what you have to go through. It's BS that you have to go through this but when all is said and done and you are recovered the cancer will be eliminated and you can get on with life. I will pray for you and be thinking of you. Please keep us updated on this post. Everyone cares.

Just wanted to let you know Diane and I are praying for you. Im so sorry you have to deal with this again and the side effects your anticipating. I really do not know what to say because I know how crappie this stuff is to deal with once so more than once has to take its toll both physically and mentally, but all that said we just have to do it and you will.

So very very sorry to hear this news. Sending all the positive and healing thoughts that I can muster at the same time as I am slinging a chair against the wall in outrage. You are strong, and you will survive this. Fight on, together with your agressive doctors.

Is Dr. Kaplan a part of your team?
