Hi Friends,

Thank you for your outstanding advice and encouragement!!!! Dick and I are set to go to USC and meet with the doc he has been consulting with there, Dr. Lenz and then fly to NYC and meet with another Medical Oncologist there. It is not Dr. K but we feel very good about both appointments. We feel that now is the time (again) to have some docs say, "OK almost at 4 years how can we get you some more years."

We do not know how we are going to work out the details, but we will. We can use all positive thoughts and prayers for our daughter with special needs and her caregiver situation while we are gone. I don't know how it is going to work but I have faith that it will.

We will keep you posted. Raise a cup to hope!

I am so very glad that you and Dick have things here on the mainland lined up. When are the appointments?

I know that you both will have your special needs daughter on your mind while you are gone and hope that the caregiver situation will be one that you are both very comfortable with.

Prayers that all will work out and that the docs here can give Dick many many more years.

Hugs to you and all your family,

Marie who loves kitties

I think you are wise to act quickly. Take action while Dick is feeling strong and well. You're fortunate to have access to the top doctors and medical facilities in the country. I feel confident that you guys will meet the right team who will come up with the right treatment plan to get Dick on the road to wellness.

Wishing you the best of luck.

I hope you and Dick get a good plan in place and start kicking cancer butt. Sounds like you are going to all the right places. Your daughter will be fine and you will be back before you know it. Things usually end up coming together and help steps in. I will be thinking about you both and have a safe trip.
