Good news for a change

My pulse rate felt like it was over 100 as we waited for Dr. B. She was about 20 minutes late and both Sheila and I were pacing the exam room. The smile on Dr. B’s face said it all as she walked happily down the hall.

The good news is that, with the exception of two tumors, they’re all gone!!! She still has a small one in her left lung and another small one in her chest. But what an incredible result in 6 months!!!! We are so relieved and happy. It’s been a rough road.

And this means that she qualifies for the clinical trial that starts in July or August. She has to wait until the end of this month for the trial to be sanctioned and sign a bunch of waivers. Plus she has to wait at least a month from the time of her last chemo, so that puts her in the first week of July anyway.

We’ll be celebrating this weekend!!!!!

Thanks for all your good thoughts, prayers, and reiki sessions.



  1. Hey Ken,

    Great news for Sheila!

    I see a bunch of comments on the bride’s side of the aisle, but not much on the groom’s side. Could it be the higher level of security on your side? Or, is it popularity based on looks? Hmmmm, no contest there. 😉

    I will see you at your wedding. I’m especially happy for my favorite cousin, knowing that she has you beside her.

    I really like the end of your June 6 post!
