It was 5 years, 3 months ago that I first wrote here when Dick was diagnosed. Now, I am once again waiting in the OR waiting room as Dick has what we hope is a short and successful surgery. He is having a biopsy so cancer tissue can be fedexed to San Fransisco for some cutting edge bio tech possibilites. Our hope is he can go home today.
Things have been getting harder for him as pain has increased and he has some bad lymphedema in his legs and pelvic area. He is going to physical therapy and has to wear the support garments. He has also been off chemo for about 6 weeks as he was having some side effects he had to recover from and also opted to do this surgery. He will start on Zaltrap asap and hopefully the cancer will be beat back and he can get off the pain meds.
That's where we are at. It is still hard but there are still good times in each day. Thinking of all of you.
