Prayers needed
« on: October 30, 2015, 10:15:34 PM »
Thank you Gary. Unfortunately I may not be in the market for another coach now. We got some very bad news yesterday afternoon. My DW was diagnosed with stage lll ovarian cancer, they will operate Monday morning at 7:00 a.m. We thought it was something completely different, we are still in shock.

I'm very sorry to hear that.  One of my daughters was diagnosed with stage lll ovarian cancer 4 years ago.  She has been through two rounds of chemo since her surgery and is doing quite well.  Hopefully your wife's surgery will go smoothly and the two of you will be out enjoying the RV lifestyle before long.  Gary

Sorry to hear that, but let me offer some encouragement. My wife has been successfully battling stage IV breast cancer for seven years now and we still need a largely normal lifestyle. She still gets regular chemo and it's a constant burden, but not the end. You and your DW will come through this.

Thank you for the encouraging words. I will know how bad it really is Monday afternoon after the surgery I guess. I did find and was dealing on a 98 Daybreak 3130, but will wait now to see what the out come is. The Dr. did tell us survival rate is only 35%. It will need tires, but the coach is really clean other wise. I'll find another when this is past us hopefully. My wife is several years younger than I, and is healthy other than this. Maybe she'll pull through, but the Dr. wasn't to encouraging.

I am sorry to hear about your wife's cancer. I hope the doctor has some good news for you after the Monday visit.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

Thanks guys. She had the surgery Monday, much worse than the Dr. thought. They did a full hysterectomy. They removed a 5" cancer with the ovarys, appendices had a cancer tumor, and the small bowel had a cancer. She still has 2  cancer nonoperatable tumors,  and some other spots that may be cancer. We won't know what treatment is going to or where it will be for a few more days.  We may have to travel for treatment. Prayers needed.

So sorry to hear that. Prayers and hugs sent.

Identify a treatment center that is highly rated by the NIH for ovarian and bowel cancers and take her there. I think Sloan-Kettering is one of the best in that specialty, but there are highly rated cancer centers in each part of the country and the care will be superior there, as well as providing support and info to the family.. Moffitt in Florida, Anderson in Texas, Johns Hopkins in Maryland, Cleveland Clinic, etc.

While the news isn't what you would have preferred, she is there; and where there is life, there is hope.

Sometimes the greatest gifts we can give to others are our prayers.

Please know that you both will be in ours.

Keep us posted.

Thank you all so much!! I really appreciate all the prayers. The report from the pathologist hasn't came back yet, so they don't really know what we're dealing with yet. The cervical cancer can't be removed, at least by the Dr.s here. I had a really bad feeling about the out come. Her gynecologist has been treating her for 3 months for problems with the uterus, those tests came back cancer free. She finally went to our regular Dr. he is the one that ordered the cat scan and found the cancers a week ago Wednesday, Thursday we seen a cancer Dr. and Monday was  the surgery. They were able to reconstruct the bowel so she doesn't have to have a bag. She was up walking Tuesday afternoon, she's a lot tougher than I am.

Thank you all so much. Charlie

Found out today, there is only 1 kind, bowel cancer, that has spread to other organs. The cancer Dr. that did the surgery only does ovarian cancer, so we will have another Dr. our first appt, is next Wednesday, then Thursday to get the staples out. She had another cat scan done today, don't have a clue why. At least she is in less pain now, than before the surgery. Thanks for all the prayers. She is very positive and says GOD will make her heal.

Update.  Staples out tuesday, 2 holes that didn't heal, that has to be stuffed with gauze 2 times a day. I got so light headed when the DR. was doing that I almost passed out. I can't do it, but at least I do help. My daughter-in-law is doing it for us, for now. I'm getting better and may be able to do it myself in a couple days. Seen the 2nd cancer DR. today, she is telling us that it is stage 4 colon cancer. They usually don't start patients on chemo until the openings in the belly have healed but she said they may start the week after Thanksgiving. She is going to take Donnas case to the board to see if maybe there is a DR. in Chicago that thinks another surgery could take place to remove the pelvic cancer if it responds to the chemo. It will have to shrink some before that can happen. Guess we'll know more in a couple weeks. 

Friday 1:45
Just found out they will put the chemo port in Wednesday morning at 6:15 AM. , and start chemo the week after Thanksgiving.

Thank you so much for all the prayers, my wife says she knows they do help.
