I had a PET scan to look and see if I had more cancer sites anywhere else. The relatively good news is that the cancer is limited to the original site in the colon and one nodule of the lung. That’s bad but it could be worse. I could have had cancer in several sites right now but the PET scan shows I don’t. The bad news is the cancer likes to spread and will probably colonize new frontiers eventually.
The initial plan of attack is to use laser radiation surgery to burn out the cancer site in the lung nodule. Genetic testing will be used to see if there are any recently developed methods that may be effective in treating my specific type of cancer. A different type of chemo may be used in the near future because my cancer appears resistant to the last chemo I received. The radiation surgery will be done in Milwaukee. Other types of treatments may follow if the cancer gets rambunctious. The oncologist mentioned that he has patients with similar conditions that have lived 10 years with modern treatments and that longer periods of time may be possible with treatment.
God is with me in any condition and this gives me strength. I do not rely on technology but I rely on God. I understand technology and I know just how pathetic it is. God’s word will not fail me or pass away. Technology is only temporary.
Just hope I don’t outlive my one son who is foolish enough to use cigarettes like a chimney belching smoke. May even still get a therapy dog if initial indications are that my lifespan will be sufficient to take care of it and enjoy it. Corgi’s are the best and I may be able to talk Judy into getting one if I play my cards right. Probably get a new Amazon Fire tablet since my old one finally broke down due to rough use. May still have enough time to read some e-books that I have on my TO DO list. My TO DO list is a large computer list that I am constantly updating. Even if I live for 99 years I couldn’t possibly finish all the projects I want to do on that list.
