Please Continue With Your Thoughts And Prayers


Please continue with your thoughts and prayers for my wife, Donna.
Yesterday we received relatively good news.
There is no cancer anywhere else in her body.
So, although it is still extremely early, we are at least hopeful that the cancer in her breast and armpit will remain there until it is removed by surgery and chemo.
As it looks now, she will be either starting chemo tomorrow or having surgery on Wednesday.
That determination will be made by her and her doctor tomorrow.
We are keeping our hopes up that this will be the case and she can start on the road to recovery soon.
As always, I want to thank all of you who have given us your support and ask that you keep the positive and spiritual energy coming her way.

Tom

Re: Please Continue With Your Thoughts And Prayers


She has an appointment to see the oncologist tomorrow and then her doctor will be putting the port into her neck on Wednesday. So it looks like they will start with chemo and then go from there.
Obviously at some point surgery will have to be performed, but we don't know as of yet when that will be.
The waiting has been excruciating. Hopefully, things will begin to move much faster now.
As always, I will keep you informed.
Thanks to all!!!

Tom

Re: Please Continue With Your Thoughts And Prayers


The plan has been put in place by the oncologist.
16 weeks of chemo starting next tuesday, then surgery and then radiation.
She will start to lose her hair by April 11.

So, I'm thinking as a way to support her during this time that I should shave my head. Maybe buy a motorcycle, get some bandanas, some leather and ride with my old lady on the back of my hog.
At least until her hair grows back.

Whaddaya think??????

I think it shows how much you care. I bet it doesn't matter exactly what you do but as long as you keep her feeling loved, occupied not allow the process to be at the forefront of her thoughts during this time, she will be in very good hands.
