Hey there, I've been following along while we were in NY. It just seems unreal that after all of that chemo and suffering that this cancer could find a way to hold on and create new places to settle. This is -right now- my number one concern with Michael. That no matter how much we fight it will eventually creep into his brain. His onc in Ny just has the saddest face when he speaks to us. Not that pity face that we all know here. But a look that says he is going to do everything he can to extend Michael's life but that in the end tc will win.
I swear after all that Matt just went through you'd think cancer would give y'all a minute.
Michael's numbers are up over 3300 again and we are waiting until both lungs have had the ablation done to begin etoposide. I sort of felt like our onc was basically saying you decide when you want to begin it because it will be the beginning of the end of your options. Of course he also mentioned a new trial he was trying to get funding for. He thinks it shows real promise but again he is only talking about buying time.
This beast has come to define us and everything we plan revolves around cancer. As you know it just sucks to not be able to make plans for Halloween forget Christmas.
Matt is never far from my thoughts. He's amazing. You are amazing.
Hope to see you two soon. I haven't been to Texas in years maybe it's time.
