Another great doctor!

The medical oncologist visit went so very well this morning. Mike is doing well, is strong, and is really having no residual effects from the surgery. He is still having some steroidal difficulties, but we were assured that as the dosage tapers off, so will these mood swings.

Our doctor is very young, on top of current treatments and assures us that everything wil be in place when the treatments start next week. Mike will be taking an oral chemo drug that has very little side effect. The doc said there could be a bit of nausea, but gave us an Rx for anti nausea medication that he says will take care of that side effect.

Again, we are so very grateful for competent doctors and a state of the art treatment center.

This is going to be a wonderful day... Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes. Remember Mike's b-day is Sunday :) Love to you all.


  1. Delighted to learn that the visit with the oncologist went well. As for birthdays, Mike, I am officially inviting you to joing with me in the Lost Boys Club. There are no more birthdays and we have a lot of fun - even if we spend an inordinate amount of time looking for our marbles.
