Heidi and I had appt. with the Radiation Oncologist this afternoon to discuss the PET Scan. The news was not good. The cancer has spread to my Adrenal gland. The cancer also has spread to new Lymph Nodes higher in my chest around Clavicle area. Also, the cancer has a new site on Aorta Artery. The good news is the cancer appears to be gone out of Lymph Nodes near my stomach and the tumor in my esophagus has shrunk but still present.
This new cancer locations cannot be treated with radiation but only with chemotherapy. I have appt. tomorrow morning with my Oncologist who will recommend chemotherapy. Eventually, the Radiation Oncologist still wants to do radiation from the inside of my esophagus by using EGD (scope) and drop probes down. But that is at least 3 months out. Right now must do chemotherapy.
Please pray for Heidi as she is not taking this new news very well. Thank you all for your continued prayer! I love all of you!
