Finally heard from the Doctor today

So I finally heard from the Doctor today and it was uh to say the least, not informative.
He basically said that I have a couple of options, I can do Chemo, but he doesnt suggest it. I can do Radiation but he isnt sure now is the best time to do it, or I can wait a few months and see where we are. Maybe do radiation at that time.

It was like, well, tell me what is best and lets do it. He said that there is no right and wrong way to treat my cancer. It just isnt that easy. It isnt going to hurt to wait but if we do Radiation now, then he said we cant do it again in that area later if we need to.

So he said he was going to be talking with my other Doctor next week and decide what they think is best and then I have an appointment on the 5th to go in and discuss what they want to do.

Not a lot of news for an update but that is the way I feel as well. I still dont know what is going to happen. It is all up in the air right now and I will just have to wait and see.

Stay strong, Evan, and remain positive. The waiting is the hardest part. Don't let your mind wander. You're in good hands. In my prayers, Kristin

Happy Birthday, to my Brown Sugar, Hoff Jade, Baby Bro! Love you to pieces...and you know, 43 is my favorite number. (Year John was born). I still think you should go on the Carribean cruise with us in May. It's only money & you only live once. Think about it. Hope you have a great day. Put yourself on the prayer roll tonight. See you soon. Love, Deb

I'm sorry to hear you are in limbo about what to do next! I hope the doctors can figure it out soon so you can feel more in control.

Hi SON, I'm aware much more about cancer than I was when your mom had it. She would be alive today if they had today's treatments and
she had a better doctor. It sounds like you have the best of both so we're hoping for the best.
I think it's great that you have such a positive attitude - that's half the battle. You will be in our prayers as well as on the temple prayer roll. I will try to
find more time to see you but don't want to hold you up from doing all you want to with your family. I love you son, more than I can explain - Just remember families are forever, enjoy life to
it's fullest -that's what I'm trying to do with the few years I have left. Dad....
