Lord have mercy.quietmorning said:Neal has another PET scan today. The insurance wasn't going to approve it, but his oncologist when to bat for him and actually met with the approving physician and bc/bs is going to pay for it.
This PET scan is to see if the tumor in his throat has shrunk enough for them to do the radiation. Please pray. If it hasn't shrunk enough will have to undergo one more very heavy chemo and they will have to try a much harder radiation therapy and do more damage to the tissues in his throat/neck and head. . .and the chances of survival goes way down.
We will find out what the results are early Monday morning. I will post as SOON as I know.
Thank you all for your prayers. They have constantly made a huge difference.
Lord have mercy. I am so sorry for this sad turn of events.quietmorning said:We went back to the oncologist on Tuesday so that Neal can start his Chemo/Radiation treatment. He examined Neal before he received his chemo - and found that there is 'thickening' on the right side of his neck. He said, "Well, you aren't cancer free, after all." His cancer type is 3 - aggressive and fast growing. They are hoping to get the remainder with the current treatment he is enduring.
May He choose to extend Neal's life so that Neal might receive His comfort. Lord have mercy.
Holy Theotokos, please save us!
