    sorry to hear it
    Hi Melanie,

    I'm sorry to hear it and totally understand your sad feelings. I'm the one with cancer and have experienced recurrences twice. It's hopefully a mass that can be either surgically removed or taken care of through cyberknife or RFA. Make sure that you check out all options. Do take care- I'll be praying for Chris.

    Makes me sad too
    So sorry to hear the news. Please try to stay positive. There are many here that have been through the same. Gain strength from their walking this path before Chris. They are proof that he can overcome this new hurdle. I will be praying for both of you.
    Blessings,

    Lots of things to do other than....
    worry to much about something you can do a lot about. Hopefully there will be several options going for you. There is always hope and always another opinion....Hope and Love, Clift...

    Melanie and Chris, please take time to be sad, but not long, we have got to get it together again and get started on getting him back in shape. I know we all need to be sad every once in a while, but to long makes for depression and we sure don't need that sneaking in on us.

    Again, Love and Hope.......Clift

    So sorry
    I'm sure you are sad right now. I'll be praying for both of y'all. Have you discussed treatment options?

    Please know that we are here for you.

    I'm Sorry
    Mel - I just saw your post. I'm sorry you did not get the results you were hoping for. My hubby also has mets in the lungs and liver. His liver stuff has remained good so I can't comment on that. Take the time to be sad, heck, have what I refer to as a total freakout then settle down, take a deep breath, dry your eyes, hold each other as tight as you can and explore your options if your current treatment is not doing its job. What did your oncologist say is the next step? Take care - Tina

    Oh Melanie
    Oh Melanie I am so sorry. I know as a spouse it is so hard when our loved ones get news that is not what we had hoped. I know you will have a plan soon but this is hard to take. I hope the two of you can get through this initial feeling of a set back and find a way to some joy for the holidays.
    So sorry. I'm sending you a hug and praying for you.

    Aloha,
    Kathleen

    Sad news
    But do not lose HOPE. My sister, age 39 stage IV, had it spread to ovaries, liver and peritoneum. 8 months of chemo and many many tumors have shrunk. Her liver, once with 11 tumors, are down to a couple. Prayers for you and your family. Marie
