I haven't been on for a while. Bad stuff going on . Please say a prayer or have a good thought for my wife. Looks as though the cancer may have progressed and is in her bones now. We will not know for about three months as the biopsy would be very invassive and the doctors say it would not help to start treatment any sooner as , if this is cancer it is incurable and treatment starting later will be just as effective. All that could be hoped for would be to slow its progression .They will wait 3 months and do another petscan to see if anything changes. This will be a very long three months for us. We are praying that the mass found will be something else . She has been through so mush already . Thanks for listening to me and know I care about all of you guys.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Keeping you both in my prayers! Has she tried any kind of alternative treatment? I was just thinking of a recent show I saw where they said tamoxifen has had good results for recurring breast cancer and that tamoxifen is an antifungal drug so maybe an antifungal diet could be helpful. Another one I remember hearing about was a study where they gave women flax seed oil and cottage cheese. I think it was a study done in Canada. I suppose you guys have probably looked into other options but these have popped into my head so I'll just pass them on and you can do what you want with them. I do truly hope you get good news and have the strength and peace to get through these next few months.

Praying for your wife. When I need a lot of prayer, I call the prayer lines and call local churches and have my need put on their prayer list. Stay strong no matter what happens.

Take care. GBU and your wife.
