Just wanted to give you an update on my daughter, Johnnybegood(Colon Forum). She had her long awaited CT & the results were as we feared. Since being off chemo for 2 mo. to promote healing of her Hand & Foot Syndorme, her largest lung mets have all grown. So she will be restarting the dreaded Irinotecan. It is effective in tumor control, but deadly to her as side effects go. She has been on it before, but had to stop because of the severity. As an unwelcome surprise, she has a new tumor on her liver. This will be addressed, possibly with RFA following the next CT in a couple of months. This will be her third liver surgery. She is so tired, short of breath with chest pain, & despondent with this news, but she remains strong in her faith that God will carry her through.
I am the same ol' me, dazed, confused, & saddened at what has happened to my wonderful family. Can write no more as I cry.
