About Me

My photo
I am a person who loves life and loves capturing it in pictures and recording it in many ways. I have been happily married for over 40 years to my wonderful husband Mike. We have raised 4 daughters, were foster parents for 11 years and are now raising 2 of our grandchildren. They are the love of our lives and the light in our eyes. At this time in our lives, we would expect to be planning for retirement, but instead we are planning for the future of these children. Starting over so to speak. At the ripe old age of 50, I found myself as a mom of a pre-schooler again so it's the second time around for us, thus my title. We attend church and teach Sunday School. Life is never dull, as you can imagine. Enjoy the pieces of our lives and allow this grandmother some bragging rights occasionally, ok very often.

Second Opinion

Today Mike had a PET scan to determine if there are any cancer cells anywhere else in his body. Very long and tiring appointment for Mike. The current plan is to begin radiation therapy on Feb 24th and to begin chemo with the one drug his body can tolerate on Friday of this week. The radiation will be for 7 weeks daily. With that being said, we are looking into getting a second opinion. Technically it will be the third opinion if you count Emory.
We should hear tomorrow how soon we can go for an evaluation. We have contacted he Cancer Centers of America in Newnan. We had some other options but felt like this was the best option for us based on the location. Please join us in praying for wisdom concerning these decisions. We want the best possible outcome for Mike. We will keep you updated as we move forward. We should have the results of the scan tomorrow afternoon. Until next time....
