Topic: Miracle Man
Hi Fun seekers! Here I am again with another Miracle Man Update. Not as cheerful as usual but working on it. Last Wednesday (over a week ago) Teddy went in to have the tube changed in his kidney for drainage. Had nothing but problems and went to Emergency Thurs and Fri. He finally leveled out with it but it is extremely uncomfortable. In the meantime he had his PET Scan (waiting for results) and Cigna has denied his Cyber Knife Surgery on the Cancer that returned to where the duodenum used to be. The cyber doctor is working on getting Cigna to approve. We now know that the mass is pushing against the right ureter crimping it so that is why he cannot urinate normally from the right kidney.
Went to his new Oncologist yesterday (old one retired) and liked him. He reiterated what we had been told by all the others, that radiation and chemo will not really help his kind of CC and that cyber knife is the way to go. His LAB work was quite good. This monster is laying at the top of the pancreas and near the right kidney.
One day we feel better about it all then we have a day like today where I look at him and see a sick man. He still tries to go to work once in a while! We have put our house up for sale as I cannot handle it all. Moving a little closer to my daughter to a beautiful apartment once we sell. Its a little hot in Phoenix right now so not too many people are looking.
Someone told me to get in the car, drive somewhere and scream. It helped but I felt ridiculous. I ask myself if we have all this time becaue it is slow growing, why does he look and act so sickly? Just had to let off a little frustration here. Thanks for listening....lainy
