Hey Guys, I apologize I dont get on the boards much, and perhaps many of you newer folks dont know me but, I wanted to give you an update (late albeit) but an update.

 

I had a CT scan & Doctor's appointment in mid Feb,

The results of the scan was this: The doctors said that there were additional tumors on my ribs, spine, bones hips..etc But the most concerning ones were the ones on my liver, They told me because of size and number of tumors on my liver I am currently in liver failure, and nothing else medically can be done.

 

So ALL medical treatment options moving forward have been stopped.

 

Basically they told me to enjoy my family while my liver is still functioning and have time.

 

Around that time (mid Feb) ) they said t’s possible that I have a few weeks until complete liver failure. 

 

This news is tough, but now is God’s chance to move and heal me! 

 

I do have a fantastic nurse who has been checking up on me regularly and helping me with pain management among other things.

 

So now our next step is to continue to hope, pray and petition for the Lord’s for healing.

I still take supplememts and will continue too, My pain has continued to ratchet up and for you folks who are farmilair with dosing (I bet most of you are)

I'm taking 60mg oxycotin 12 hour release and 15MG of oxycodone every 4 hours for breakthrough pain.

Lastly I wish the very best to everyone in thier fight and recovery !

Hey Nick,

Thank you so very much for taking the time to drop by and give us an update. With all you are going through, the strenght of your character shines above guiding us on how to live life to the fullest. I am truely sorry to hear about the spread of the cancer. It is such a terrible and evil beast that does not give up easily once it burrows in. It is great to hear you are on top of the meds - one of the most vital variables you still have control over to give you comfort. Know we are all right beside you. Don

I just don’t believe in the sorry we can’t do anymore thing. I was giving 6 months to a year to live back in 2006 and I am still here. There are other things that you can try, click on my name and read my all about me page and send me an e-mail.

There is always hope

 

I am praying for you both

Nick,

 

So sorry to hear the latest news. You are on some heavy pain meds and I am amazed you are able to think straight. Jim is only on 15ml of hydrocodone as needed and his mind is pretty much messed up. He has always been real sensitive to pain meds though. I am praying for you and your family. I still believe in miracles and I pray you recieve one.
