A little news

So at noon today we still hadn't heard from the Dr., and I may have been freaking out a big...Everytime the phone would ring I would get the nervous tummy...and then when it turned out to be someone else, I would get a little mean. Sorry mom, dad, Cody, and Grandma..yes I was even mean to my Grandma. I wont apologize to the Dish network people who wont take the freakin hint to stop calling us. Maybe this time I was mean enough...

So I called Trav and made him call the office. Apparently the Doctor wasn't there today, meaning we wouldn't get our results till Monday. So he called the hospital and they let him come and pick them up.

So these results are as much as we can understand about the report, I'm sure on Monday the Dr. will help us understand more.

Almost everything was Stable, meaning there was no change at all. There is one spot in his lungs that has gone from 8mm to 1 cm, and I'm not sure how concerned the Dr. will be about that.

We are happy that things seem to be stable, but admittingly a bit bummed that there wasn't more shrinkage. :). We were sort of hoping for a miracle.

Maybe next time. I'm hoping that on Monday we will know a little more.

Thanks again for all the phone calls and visits.

Stupid cancer! Stable is good. Take stable this time and shrinkage next time.

Why would the doctor make you wait so long? So frustrating! I was afraid to ask you because I knew you would be on pins and needles. Stable is good. Lets us know what the doctor has to say!

I'm sorry there was no "shrinkage"! I have been hoping for a miracle too!
It was fun seeing you guys for a minute tonight. I forgot how much Cody and Trav are alike. We REALLY need to play someday!

How frustrating...all of the waiting. You and Travis will be in my prayers. And the next time you see that Dr. you tell him that when he upsets you...he's upsetting the WHOLE "blog fan club"!!! lol No more waiting!!!

Oh, my gosh, I can't believe it is you guys! It's me, Klair. Fullmer. I used to give my life to Icon Health & Fitness. Anyway, I somehow found Michelle's blog & saw your names, so here I am, stalking you!

I am so glad I found you when I did, as I see you are going private. I think about you, Trav, all the time & wonder how you are doing. A good friend would just call, but I imagine you get a billion questions every day. Bad excuse, I should just do it anyway!

Hope you get some good results tomorrow. You guys are in my prayers.

We have been thinking about you guys all week, hoping and praying. The news sounds positive so far, I had to look up the mm, cm, thing and it's only 2 mm difference. I'm no doctor but it sounds hopeful to me!
We love you guys, let us know if there's anything you need. -Guymon Family
