edited October 2015 in Kidney Cancer #1

Well, I've been dreading this upcoming week. Our family has suffered some losses this month and it just seems like we can't catch a break. Today we our 10 year old daughter accompanied is to her first funeral, for an amazing family member gone too soon to cancer. Later this month, my husbands close friend will also be having cancer surgery, and we are just months out of the unexpected, abrupt death of one of his best friends. I also lost a student, tragically this week. So much, so close together. 

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as my husband goes for his scans Wednesday.

    So sorry

    I am so sorry for all that your family has and will be going through. I will  keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. I myself, will be having surgery for kidney cancer tomorrow. Seems like times are trying for so many of us.

    So many tragic things

    So many tragic things happening simultaneously, so sorry for your situation... But even the longest chain of terrible things ends sooner or later. It will end with your husbands good scans. Scanxiety is devastating, but Wednesday is very soon. So very soon you'll. Be able to sigh with relief!

    Scanxiety

    It never goes away.  I am three years NED   11CM  Stage 3 Grade 3.  The only constructive thing I was able to do was arrange for same day results.  It just sucks but we are all still here!!!

    Good luck with the surgery

    May it be as boring as possible.

    So sorry to hear what you

    So sorry to hear what you have been going through lately, Sarah. I have noticed that it has been quieter on your end - I always hope that it is for good reasons. It does always seem to happen at once, doesn't it? Hoping this is the end of it, and your husband's scans mark a new trend for you and that NED arrives at your doorstep.

    And Nancy - good luck tomorrow! My thoughts and prayers are with you both!

    Big Hugs

    Jojo

    You guys are so awesome.

    Allocha, I am so thankful for your perspective on the situation. It totally changed my outlook. I never thought about it that way. 

     

    I think we have some good karma coming this way, I can feel it. 

     

    Hope surgery goes well Nancy and that NED is paying SEVERAL visits this week. 

    Until then, it's a nice Nyquil cocktail every night for me followed by a big Red Bull morning!!

    Phew!!! Ned came to dinner!

    Stage T3a, NO MO chromophobe with extensive tumor necrosis. Well, TOO BAD because it's now 2 years NED.

     

    Jojo YOU ARE NEXT!!!! Get ready to celebrate. 

     

    I crashed at 6:30 and slept.  This was a tough week. Now to gear up for friend's cancer surgery in the upcoming weeks. Her prognosis is good, but the surgery will be extensive. If you pray, please add her to your prayers I know she will appreciate. 

     

    This morning we review report with Oncologist and ask about some additional findings (gall stones). He'll also probably yell about his weight gain. But tonight we celebrate. 

    May I say how amazing you all are here? Thanks everyone.

    Wonderful news! Hope Uncle

    Wonderful news! Hope Uncle NED enjoyed the lasagna before being kicked out to be on his way to Jojo. Very happy to hear your good news. You must be so relieved.
