Scan update

Good news.  I don’t have any new nodules and the ones I have are smaller.  The plan is to have radiation for the nodule in my right lung.  I’ll meet with the radiation oncologist in the coming weeks and he will explain the radiation process.  From what I was told by my oncologist it may be between 2-4 treatments of radiation. I will continue to receive chemo while getting radiation.  I will meet with the thoracic surgeon next week to discuss having surgery to remove the nodule in my left lung and establishing a time frame for the surgery.  I’ve discussed this particular nodule with her and she would be able to remove it and the surgery would be less invasive than my previous surgeries.  I will need to be off chemo for possibly four weeks before having the surgery.  After surgery, I will complete the rest of my chemo regimen.  Overall, I have four more months of chemo with radiation and a surgery thrown into the mix.

    Dear Kevin,

    It is Michelle (at JHU). I am wishing you and your family strength as you continue your journey.

    Hope is the thing with feathers –

    That perches in the soul –

    And sings the tune without the words –

    And never stops – at all –
