    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    My new bride caught a cold in the fall and noticed that her fingertips were swelling. She had a cough that was mild, but lingered. Before a trip she visited the doctor about the cough. He did not even bother to listen to her lungs. :( We slowly followed with a couple more visits. Finally a cat scan was suggested. She has a tumor in her lung, one an ovary, and on her liver. We had a biopsy before Easter and will meet with the cancer doctors next week. Two weeks ago we were dreaming about what retirement will be like and now I am scared that I will lose her very soon.

    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    We talked with the cancer doctor today. It is cancer and probably has spread. We will receive the pet scan and an mri this week. Even if this is good, they have already said that surgery is not an option.
