Ok…back to our originally scheduled programming

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Sorry folks. Rob is wasted on Ambien. I have wrestled control of the computer away from him. He may require a horse tranquilizer to get to sleep.

The lowdown is that Rob has the dreaded tumor progression. After a lovely dormant period, that bastard Tawd is back.

We were told two likely scenarios today at the visit with the oncologist:

We continue with treatment (Avastin) and Rob begins to feel better and the tumor retreats.

We continue with treatment and Rob continues to decline, the tumor continues to grow and we arrange hospice care and we keep Rob as happy and comfortable as possible.

This will all play out over the next month or so. It will be obvious even without another MRI which scenario is going down.

After all this time, these are really the only options available to us. Other available drugs that Rob could try have a roughly 5% chance of making an improvement, but a huge chance of really unpleasant side effects which will dramatically diminish his quality of life.  

We continue to laugh and we continue to love one another and we appreciate all your support.





Coming back into focus

Well…sort of. 


Got some of my drugs changed around and I’m feeling better.

The end my focus…

There is fog in my mind.  I’ve begun my journey to go insane.  I’m a mess.
