Feel better after oncologist visit. The bad news is the tongue cancer is back on the left side and extends to the left madible. The 15 nodules in the lungs have grown in size. There are a lot of medical terms about abnormal uptake and intense uptake in hilar region, mediastinum and others. I guess I need a medical dictionary.
You are probably wondering what is the good news? The good news is that the Oncologist said he thought Jim would be around sometime as he has been fighting this a long time and done better than expected. In future he said Jim will probably need the left lung drained of the fluid and to go on oxygen. He said for him to do what he feels he can (fish) and don't do what he doesn't feel like doing (wash windows). He has a sense of humor. All in all I feel better. I was expecting worse news. Still believe in miracles and praying for one.
