To those who don't know as of yet, over the past few months, the symptoms of my cancer have gotten worse. I scheduled some rush MRI's with one of my oncologists as I wanted to see if I freaking out for no good reason, or was I right in thinking that something was different. To make a long story short, the cancer has combined with my spine at the brain stem and has metastasized at my lower back. The doctor had given me about 4-5 months to live. It has put our lives in a bit of a tail spin to say the least.
Now of course this isn't the best news one could hear from one's doctor but we are taking it in stride. Today I start radiation to those troublesome areas to extend my life. I believe that I will have 5 treatments, as they are treating two places once again. I get a shiny new mask, my third, and some snazzy new tatts from this. Time will tell if it all worked out or not, but I haven't handled it normally yet so I don't expect any different.
I do ask for a little space over the next little while, as I don't want Cavell or myself overwhelmed with messages to return. Know that if we do receive messages, we may not reply, at least for a while, but that doesn't mean we didn't read your message and appreciate the thought.
It may sound a bit crass but look at what we are facing here. I shall keep the social media world in the loop with regards to my progress but again please listen to our wishes.
Thanks again and we shall be in touch.
