Free lodging in Boston

I just now discovered a place in Boston that provides lodging to people receiving cancer treatment who live greater than 40 miles away. I wish I had found this place sooner! It's near Dana Farber. https://www.cancer.org/treatment/support-programs-and-services/patient-lodging/hope-lodge/boston/stayin...

Re: Finally....some really great news!!!

I was actually so anxious that I worked really hard on a court filing last week in order to have it ready early (done before the scan results) before the filing deadline Monday the 12th. That way, if we got bad news, I wouldn't have distractions from my work. Now I have a few days off from work as a...

Re: Finally....some really great news!!!

Yay! The Chest CT results say that the nodules are nothing more than scars as they have not changed at all from the May Chest CT (baseline). The radiologist also noted that nothing new can be seen in the liver, but of course we will know for sure when he has the MRI at the end of November. Still NED!

Re: Finally....some really great news!!!

Just popping in... My husband's chest CT is Monday and I'm getting scan-anxiety. I filed a really important brief a few days ago and I have a reply brief due November 12th. I don't need bad news right in the middle of this extremely important drafting. I'm wondering if he will get a call a few days ...

Re: Finally....some really great news!!!

I am posting on this thread I started because it shows my most recent rides on this rollercoaster. So, husband's Chest CT at the local hospital has been scheduled for Nov 5th. We will be going to Boston Nov 27th for abdominal MRI. I have been noticing that our dog has started to lie on my husband's ...

Re: Stage 3 to 4

I second what MassMike said. I would not assume you've jumped from Stage III to IV until the masses are confirmed to be cancerous.

Re: Stage 4 to NED- Please tell us

Spazzyjanet, Good to hear that he is having an MRI. I have to advocate for my husband to get them instead of CTs as his CTs never picked up on his liver tumor. (I honestly don't know why the oncologist had ordered a CT in May when he originally said that surveillance was going to be with MRIs.) The ...

Re: OFF TOPIC - HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

Work builds up while he is gone because he is the backbone of his company. Tuesday was awful because he returned to learn that a number of people dropped the ball when he was away - and it was only for one day! My husband's heart rate is averaging 69 at rest. I guess that's ok? He's still on a bunch...

Re: OFF TOPIC - HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

Thanks for the well wishes. It was nice to have a moment of peace and quiet. Got back yesterday to a terrible day. It was back to the grind with lots of stress from his company. We need a vacation to rest from our mini (two nights) vacation!

OFF TOPIC - HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

Just popping in to say that I hope everyone has as great a weekend as possible! My husband and I married on Columbus Day weekend 2015 and went to a cabin in the mountains for our honeymoon. Every anniversary, we return. This weekend will be a well-earned couple days of relaxation after a very arduou...
