Anyone who puts up with you has to be tough Dizzy.   :P

Glad to see she is making good progress even if it isn't as rapid as you would like (it never is that fast), as long as progress is steady you will get there.

Dizzy, I missed this entire thread... I haven't really been around here for several years.

I, too will pray for your wife.  See, my father... and I'm an old guy, so imagine how old he is... has what technically is "incurable" cancer, of the colon to be technical, though now, he no longer has his colon, to be precise.  However, he as been on chemotherapy, alternating with breaks when the scans come back good, as with your wife.  But he's been doing this for... wow, about ten years or more.  And, while he looked twenty years younger than his age before his operation, he really does look his age now, but he is still driving around all over the place, cooks essentially daily, gripes about his favorite teams and players with gusto, eats well and eats essentially whatever he likes, and almost lives as if he hasn't any cancer.  Only going to the bathroom and taking chemo reminds him of it.  Of course, after his more extended breaks from chemo, somewhat suspicious signs pop up in his scans, but taking the drugs again clear them...

... and he's a fairly old guy.

Your wife, from your video, is a strong and young looking young lady, apparently with a great attitude (as has also my pops), and I suspect that whether or not hers will be "curable", it may at least be totally manageable, will little disturbance to her lifestyle and little effect on her lifespan.  A gift from God Almighty- our incredible, very efficacious, and wonderful modern medicine and medical technology.  I am glad to hear and thankful that her condition is responding well.  God grant you a long, wonderful time together.

Thanks for the continued support, guys... Means a lot. E_Look, what a great post man. Thank you. I'm never going to look at statistics on the internet again... If we went by those she'd have less than 8 months to live. We are now starting to look at the longer term of management and seeing a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel. Hope your dad stays cranky and fiesty for a long time. Thanks for the post. I'll have berte read it.  ;)

You know the old saying, there are lies, damned lies, and statistics.

Don't give her any stress more than is unavoidable.  I believe stress does not help it... there may be soft to somewhat firm medical evidence of this.  And, check with the oncologist as to what foods may or may not be be a good idea.

Been a while since I've posted. I was planning on participating in the mission testing part with old friends, but got some bad news that quickly sidetracked that. Berte is having what her doctor explained is a mixed response to her current treatment. The cancer in her breast and lymph nodes are shrinking, but it metastisized to her bones in about 3 or 4 places and came back in her liver. She broke a rib where her bones had been weakened but has gotten better.

We are meeting a specialist that runs the experimental drugs department of the start center and will see if berte is a candidate for advanced measures to bring this under control... I'm not yet giving up hope that the cancer can be put into remission... I just keep praying... How are all you guys doing?

Berte got in on a promising new drug regimen that stops cancer cells from replicating. Its just a pill you swallow. How simple and easy. Thats the direction all drugs should go with cancer. Take a pill and it makes it go away...

Mods, unsticky this at anytime. I appreciate the prayers that have been given to berte and they have gotten us past the rocky road to where we are now, which is a lifelong battle with this disease with no end in sight and I'm ok with that. I can deal with the uncertainty... Its the finality of it all I have to not think about that that does me no good. I'll post updates when I have them. Thanks for that prayer ravok.

It didnt even go two months. Spread to more bones and her brain. She is having Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde mood swings. Experimental drug did nothing but let the cancer have a field day. Cant win them all. I got her garden finished tho. She planted it...

thx for asking guys. She is so strong... The doctors decided to give her an ethanol injection into her liver never center to deaden it. So now she cant walk well... But the pain from her extensive liver metastasis is now tolerable. She was given 2-3 months left to live about 3 weeks ago if we did nothing. So she is taking some kinda high powered Doxil chemo that may do something... We just dont know. It is knocking her on her ass though. Its a nasty drug. Too bad we dont have the $4k a month for that Burzinski character in houston that people say can cure almost any cancer... When it sounds too good to be true...

I have no idea how much time I have left with her. It could be weeks, days or hopefully this drug may put her back in remission. Who knows... I'm hoping at the very least we have some time to shoot some videos of her for the future. I suggested making videos for the kids for things like Beth's 1st date, prom, graduation, her 1st broken heart... The kinda advice only mom can give. That would be nice to have to show them when the time is right. I hope we are able to do that.

What Im really hoping is that she is able to again take a deep breath and feel well enough to sing. There are a few dozen songs Id like her to record. We've been married for almost 18 years and I have so few recordings of her angelic voice...

Hello, Dizzy:

I'm praying for you and your wife while she tries this new chemo.

I love the Halloween picture you posted a few pages back of your wife and kids.  You've got a great family and deserve all the prayers you can get.
