Been busy & haven't updated the page for too long. ¬†
Last week we got the best news since Jim was diagnosed. ¬†His oncologist ordered a colonoscopy because he was afraid that there ¬†might be involvement in that location. ¬†We are happy to report that his colon is cancer free! ¬†That means the involvement is contained to his esophagus & liver. ¬†While that is bad enough it would have been much worse if they'd found a third site!
Jim is bouncing back from his second round of chemo. ¬†He has more energy & feels less crappy than he has in months. ¬†Some of his symptoms are lessening also which Dr.A told us means the chemo is kicking in. ¬†Jim's fever & nightsweats are gone at this point. ¬†That was one of the symptoms that was wearing him out the most.¬†
Round 3 for the chemo is next Thursday. ¬†Still trying to find a fund that will help out with his co-pays. ¬†Got a letter the other day from a place the social worker suggested as our best shot...they thanked us for applying but regretfully can't assist with Jim's co-pays because he doesn't have a diagnosis that they cover!. ¬†I'm hitting this roadblock over & over again! ¬†Frustration level is high!
But I want to end this update on a good note so I will once again thank all our wonderful friends & family for all the love & support they have shown Jim & me du
ring this very difficult time. ¬†We are grateful you are a part of our lives.
Love & blessings,
Jim & Sheri
