DrF, I too am very glad to hear that Marion is doing well. I want you to know that you, Marion, and your family will be in my thoughts. You have taken the time to consider my own troubles and pass on encouragement and advice while you own situation is much more difficult. I do appreciate the kindness that you have extended to me.

In order to make an effort to control what I have come to realize is an addiction I will no longer be able to post the thread here. I especially wanted you to know that the lack of posted support from me does NOT mean that I am not thinking, and yes praying on your behalf.

updates:

Good news again:bigsmile: :jump:

Marian has started chemo round 6 and her neutrophyls have gone up again, they are now 1.6 (where 2 is normal and below one and they'll cease treatment). So this is really good news. This treatment is the half way mark for her and depending on the results from her Pet scan (This friday 10am oz'y time) she may not need the full 12 rounds.

Thank you all

Dr F

Excellent news! Glad to hear it. What exactly are neutrophyls?
They are baby white blood cells, when they are low it means the white blood cells aren't being replenished. If they continue the treatment the chemo will destroy whats left of her white blood cells and if there isn't enough nuetrophyls present to grow into white cells, then she will become highly succeptible to infection.

Updates, for those who are supersticious (SP?) Friday 13th was a good news day for us.

The specialist informed us after tests that Marians cancer is in remission.
She was only half way through her treatment so they will give her another two rounds of chemo to be sure, After this they are going to look at surgery to remove the primary tumer. We are now praying that this will not result in a colostrophy bag.


So heres to Friday the 13th:

:party::fireworks2::banana::woohoo::jump:
It will for be a day of prayers answered.

And for all those who have supported us from the shack:

:thankyou:


Cheers
Dr F

Thanks Don, It has been a little while since I last updated this thread, but I am glad to know people are still reading it and care. Today was the last day of chemo treatment, we don't know if there will be a need for more or not so from here on in it is just one day at a time. She needs to have surgery to remove the primary tumer, then after that it is all upto God.

Once again thankyou everyone, I will keep updating this thread as it happens, however for the next few monthes we are hoping it will happen very slowely.

drf,

Just thought I would tell you something you may not realize.

By sharing your situation with us, and the many good folks here expressing their interest and support, this thread has become a real source of inspiration and a reaffirmation that there are a lot of good hearted and admirable people in every corner of this world. At least for me it has anyway.

You and your wife are often in my thoughts. I look forward to hearing more good news. I second Don's sentiment that we are here and if there is anything you need or just need to vent, please do so knowing there are many here just waiting to help you shoulder this load in whatever small way that we can.

In the meantime make sure you do these things several times every day.
:kiss: :heartbeat: :) :praying: :joke: :kisskiss:

Keep us posted! :wave:
