Sorry to hear the results of your ct scan. I watched on Tv the other day Dr.Oz and what he had to say about your illness. Keep a positive attitude, get it all together. Have faith in the man upstairs. Keep us posted Corey.

Well the Oncologist told me that my options are to wait and see what happens next or to go back to the Chemo that I was taking just prior to the Chemo/Radiation treatment and at least keep the tumor from growing. So of course we chose the Chemo it is once every three weeks for the infusion part and a prescription that I take for two weeks and off the third week. I have decided to get a second opinion here in Yakima, I will keep everyone here posted. I do appreciate the thoughts and prayers they do keep me going and I hope that someday somewhere I will get to meet all of you that I have not had the pleasure to so far.

Cory: I hope the second opinion went well. Based on my Mom's battle with a rare illness, I urge you to find the BEST expert in the country and go there for a second opinion - regardless of where you are located. I am always amazed how Drs with the same credentials and experience often have very different treatment options and you have to find the one that works best for you and your family.

I only hope that you and your family are able to enjoy the holidays and find much to be thankful for. I am thankful for your posts and updates as well as the positivity and prayers being sent your way. I pray for you.

Update us when you can.

Sharon

I have decided to switch Dr. and treatment center after my second and third opinions. The Dr. that has been treating me told me that someone in my stage of the disease on average has six months to a year left. I am not willing to accept that. The Cancer Center of Seattle (affiliated with Cancer Centers of America), has a clinic study where they are using four different chemos once a week. Most of the patients in this study have cancer that has spread already where mine has not. They even have one patient that his tumor is starting to shrink. Thank you all your prayers help keep me strong, and thanks for the Birthday wishes I had a very good day with my family.
Cory

Cory,

I can tell you that changing oncologists to one who is willing to be more aggressive with the treatments and willing to try options is far better than the other option by a long shot.

So far, that approach has given me 17 wonderful years the first doc said I wouldn't have, and I've got a ton more to go. The road gets pretty tough, and at times one wonders if they can get through it, but the one day at a time approach certainly worked for me. The love, prayers, and commitment of my family and friends was a huge help.

Keep at them, and you are very much in our thoughts and prayers.

Barry

Hang in there. My dad was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer, an always fatal form of cancer. He was 79 at the time it was discovered and was given 3 to 9 months tops. His 5 year CT showed no trace of cancer. He went thru chemo and radiation, thanks to one of my friends who is a radiation oncologist. You can go against the odds and win. Keep a positive attitude and keep on truckin.

Sorry I have not updated in a while, this new regimen is very tough and the travel on the mountain pass has been stressful. I just finished my seventh treatment of the twelve week regimen on Tuesday (2/5) and have spent most of the following days sleeping on the couch. I could really use some extra prayers for strength, some days I just don't feel like doing all the things that I am supposed to do. I am just so tired. The good news is that my pain level has decreased to about half of what it used to be.
