Re: Supporting my husband with a new DX *UPDATE*

First off: Take a deep breath. Your battle is starting not ending. In my opinion “incurable” means bunk until all available options have been tried.

Re: Possibly still NED...our story to date

So, here is the latest. What a long week and half!!!

Re: Discharged with abnormal ECG

He went in with heart issues, sounds to me like abnormal ECG is the norm for him. I’m sure they wouldn’t release him unless they were sure he’s ok.

They explained to me that it's very common when there are ablations for those liver enzymes to jump up that high. What a relief that it is totally normal. He said that they may go up still in th...
