Been a while since I have been on the board. We have had an eventful end to 2012. We had to move out of the home we bought last July to a rental due to unsafe mold. We do not like to sue people so gave the seller an option to return our money, which they did just before Christmas. We are now in the process of buying another home.
As for Jim's health, he has been doing great. His oncologist said that he is the healthiest sick patient he has. I bought Jim a boat for Christmas and he has been having a great time fishing. I did however catch more fish than he did last week.
A new problem has arisen. I noticed a swelling under Jim's lower lip a few weeks ago. He said it was not sore or hard. We assumed it was a swollen saliva gland or lymph node and figured we would wait for an upcoming oncologis visit to ask. This weekend Jim said he had a canker sore inside his lower lip. I did not think to much about it. This morning he was complaing about how sore it was. I looked at it and realized it wasn't a cankersore. We go to the PCP on Thursday and the oncologist next week.
I am so bumed out. Jim has more energy, gained weight and looks better than he has in two years. We have been thinking that maybe the cancer had slowed down or went dormant. I know it aint cancer until they say it is but it does worry a person. Jim has also been put back on cumadin so maybe that is causing the problem.
Anyway, please keep him in your prayers.
