Topic: Since the doc's don't seem to know, I'll ask the experts!
Hey all! Lee went for chemo last week as planned, port was blocked, so had to use pick line...all went ok....while he was undergoing treatment he had sometime to chat with the doc...Lee said that he had a very "eye" opening experience...the doc actually told him that he had not, HAD NOT expected him to live this long...was not at all sure what to do since there is NO CURE for this cancer....and that now they were simply putting the cancer in "remission" (in other words buying time!) in hopes that one day there would be a miracle. Well, with hope on the horizon...Lee contacted the Cancer Treatment Centers of America down in Goodyear...you know the one's who say when all else fails we have all the answers....guess what their answer for us was....the same thing as AZ Oncologists!!! Little discouraging don't ya think!!!! But, the great thing is, Lee is doing a whole lot better....even though he sleeps much of the day away. He is READY TO FIGHT, FIGHT FIGHT! He even got a tatoo!! Sooo cool! What I really need to know from you all, and I know, I know, it is different with everyone, Lee really does look awful....very thin, yellow, walks real slow, but again feeling good...any insight....normal? getting sicker inside? Do we keep searching for answers for other hospitals across the country...how bout Loma Linda in sunny California....any experience with anything there? Ummm...I'm thinkin'....what about driving...how many of you out there are still driving...I know it sounds silly...but Mr. Jeff Gordon aka Lee Pehl still thinks he can get out there with the best of them...and I don't think so....so with that, I'm gonna get some coffee, and do some praying!
