Oncology appointment in Springfield 11-29-12

30 11 2012

Well today was a little disappointing!  I found out that my surgeon is St. Louis received my pathology slides but they can not do gene testing on slides so he has to request the tissue block.  This means a delay of at least 10 days to a couple of weeks for results.  In the mean time I am just setting here in limbo waiting to see what drug I can get.  The longer I wait the more my cancer can grow.  On a good note my new spot does not seem to be anything to worry about.  I think the hardest part of having cancer is waiting to see WHAT IS NEXT.  I am ready to start treatments so I can get this over with and move on to a normal life.  I guess I am not sure what normal is but it has to be better than living in the dark.  SO lets all live for today, make the most of it, and treasure your family and friends.

I am going to continue to work on this site so if you have any information that would be beneficial to share on melanoma please let me know.  I also have added a Photo gallery of my journey and surgeries so far.  The photos are not pretty but it give you an idea what I have gone through.  The link is at the top of the page.  If you click on the music player it will play a beautiful song while the slide show plays.  The song is by Chris Tomlin, “Whom Shall I Fear” from his new album Burning Lights.  Chris has a beautiful voice and his songs are amazing.  If you like him he will be performing here in Springfield at the convention center in March.
