URGENT!! Strong prayers needed NOW!!

Postby ronswife » Thu Nov 03, 2016 12:13 pm

Hello All,

I just got a call today from Ron and he told me he could barely walk into the clinic when they called his name to come back!

Then they did blood work and found that his liver is only functioning at a certain percentage. As a result they CANCELLED his 6 hour chemo today. He is waiting on finding out if he can get a CT scan there now.

PLEASE pray for him! I am besides myself with worry and fear!!

Thanks and God Bless!

:x :cry: :cry:
Husband Ron diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer on 3/15/16, right after first colonoscopy at age 68. Had surgery to remove tumor on 3/31/16. Many mets on top and bottom of liver that are not resectable. Started chemo 4/28/16 using Fluorouracil (5-FU) and Irinotecan. Started Erbitux 5/26 on third chemo. Had very good results on 7/14 CT scan!! Treated with Avastin and Capecitabine 8/4/16. CT on 10/18 showed cancer growth. Now on FOLFOX. Placed in Hospice in early December and passed away 12/29/16.

Just got a call from Ron's onc's PA, Amber! Ron's CT today showed jaundice in his liver and he needs chemo ASAP. They want to schedule it for tomorrow! But the GOOD news is that there is NO obstruction in the liver, which is what they were looking for!

Thanks for the prayers! I have eaten very little all day and I am drained!!!
