Well, thank you for that. I just got back from MD Anderson and got what seem slike the first good news I have gotten during this whole process.

The results fro my brain MRI, and my PET scan were negative for other cancer in my body. It appears to be contained within my lungs. that is a minor miracle in itself, as as theradiologist confided in me today that if my lever of cancer had spread "outside the box", it would not have been survivable for me. So, that's great news for me, and I still have my 20% chance at survival.

The next update was that we may be changing the aproach a bit. The radiologist after reviewing all fim on my lungs feels that, dueto the amount of involvement of the lymph nodes in my lungs and the extent/spread of thecancer, if I DID survive this cancer, there would not be enough heathy tissue left in my lungs to provide me with any decent quality of life. Therefore he wanted to talk to the oncologist about doing a couple rounds of chemo first, hoping to shrink theing a bit and give him a better opportunity to nuke the tumors without trashing all of the surrounding tissue.

So that is where we are at. I go to get surgery to get my port put in tomorow morning, and still planning at least on starting chemo on Monday.

We'll take any bit of good news that we can get Bud!! Now let's get that port in and start working on those tumors. Shrink the hell outta them. In the meantime, Budweiser always helps! Keep up the good work Freshey!

Tip for when you start chemo:

-Eat with plastic silverware. For some reason most chemo patients get a really bad metallic taste when eating with metal silverware.
