Unwelcome, Unexpected Surprise

We met with the MDA Rad Onc today. The good news is that there appears to be no lymph node involvemnt in the lung area, so Ron will be preparing for 4 Rad treatments on the lung which the doc feels will eradicate that tumor. I'll make arrangements to get his teeth pulled as he prepares for the tougher phase, the 35 H&N rads to run concurrently with chemo. The not so good news is that the tumor is growing into his nasal cavity and heading for his eye socket, so it's imperative that treatment be started ASAP. There will probably not be any surgery other than the placement of a feeding tube

Tomorrow, we'll be seeing the urologist in the morning. I'm hoping there will be a quck fix for those problems. And then on to the cardio. Also hoping that he can restart his other diuretics to alleviate the swollen feet and ankles.

And on the other side of the country, my daughter, Johnnybegood will be having her spleen removal surgery tomorrow.

So please, if you have an extra prayer or good vibe, send it toward my baby for her surgery and for my poor hubby.

Thanks guys,

Prayers and good vibes going to both your hubby and your baby...I am SO glad to hear that they've figured out their plan and things are moving forward.  It looks like with the need of only 4 rads to the lung that his HNC is going to be addressed quickly....good!!  This has been a long haul getting to this point...so I'm sending you some good vibes, too........and a huge hug......
