Had a busy but good week for the most part. Page got in from Atlanta Tuesday night and was able to go with us to my last radiation on Wednesday last week. Sadly, we got some disturbing news - turns out the lumpy - bumpies the radiation oncologist questioned over 3.5 weeks ago and the surgeon said it was nothing became a little "more" defined" - "two defined" places. He took pictures at which time Page asked him what did the surgeon mean when he said he got it all and the margins were clean and once again, he said this particular melanoma is extremely aggressive and will go where it wants to. The surgeon came over to look and he wasn't happy at all. He said he was concerned and wanted to do a biopsy (will be tomorrow morning). The radiation oncologist told him he wasn't too far in with my treatment to make some changes if needed. The surgeon took my hand and said "now - it could still be scar tissue". I'm like - Yeah - right! Felt so good about how well I did with the radiation and then this. BUMMER! So tomorrow I go at 10am for biopsy and then go back at 5:30 for more radiation. It took me awhile to settle down into the mask today - lots of reasons including the ever changing mucous that almost chokes me now. Love my team - they told me to stop apologizing and to trust them that they understood. ENOUGH ABOUT ME!!!!!!!!
BigD and Kurt went fishing Thursday and Friday and had a really nice time. They caught about 60 pounds of blow-fish which they both love to eat. Ann came Friday and brought the kids and a nice big ham. Page and Leah made green beans, deviled eggs, and Leah's famous Mac N Cheese. They made a bunch of "pain-killers" and were having a good time. Keith came by to hang out with them and we all felt for a bit like we were at the beach. Thanks guys - that was fun.
