Up early this morning so thought I'd check in early! Steve, (my best friend Beki's husband) saw the oncologist yesterday and Praise the Lord the cancer is not in the brain (a good thing). They are concerned about one lymph node that has traveled to upper lobe of lung whereas the other 3 are where the spot is; so will be keep a close watch on that. He will start on Feb. 11 weekly 2-3 hour chemo infusions and radiation 5 days a week for 6-7 weeks. 6 weeks after radiation is done will do another pet scan and see where they are then and may have to have another round of chemo. Considering to be stage 3 which is still curable but even if not curable; is treatable with the liklihood of several years of survival. So even though it's a mixed bag, it is mostly positive and I have kept her up to date with y'all's prayers and comments which she is very appreciative and will probably introduce herself on this site in the near future. I've told her to be sure and mention she's basketcase's best friend so y'all can make the connection! Thanks so much for your prayers and continued ones. God Bless!
