Default Health Update

Well its been 7 months now since diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal cancer.

The cancer had spread to my liver in addition to the tumor. Two spots on my liver are now completely gone and one remaining is slowly going away also.

The Tumor has shrunk significatly and I have gained 20 of the 50 pounds I had lost back.

I am now on disability due to the nueropathy in my hands and feet causing loss of feeling most of the time.

Doc says things are goinjg GREAT and I have gotten a break from the chemo for 1 month to build some strength and have a small bit of summer.

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers as they are working.

Mike

I have severe neuropathy in my extremeties too and know exactly how that feels. I've been on disability since 2002.
