Is there Light at the end of the Tunnel-Part Three

Alright, let's face it, we are sick and tired of getting telephone calls from doctors.  When the phone rang we were actually outside and by the time I got into the house the doctor just hung up-he left a message on my answering machine that we needed to call him back as soon as possible.  So I immediately called him and heard what I never thought I would hear. The MRI results found a small spot on my husband's brain and he needs to have radiation done, which also meant another doctor. Chemo had to be placed on hold for a while.

The new radiation doctor explained to us and SHOWED us the results from the MRI.  If the "small spot" was small than I am a freaking millionaire and I promise I am NOT that! The cancer mass on my husbands brain is large.  It is large enough that unfortunately I pulled the doctor aside and asked him flat out how serious this was and he told me!  If you are ever in this position and you want to the know the truth, be careful what you ask for because you will damn well get it!

One of my main concerns was, why in the hell was this cancer not found sooner! Guess what, when you have an evasive cancer and you are going through chemo, the cancer runs and tries to hide from the chemo therefore it makes a b-line to the brain because chemo does not go to the brain.  That is what happened in my husbands case, the cancer hauled ass to the brain in that short of a time.  The radiation doctor told me that at this point, all we can do is make my husband as comfort as possible.  The doctors plan is to put my husband through 10 radiation treatments (we have 6 down and 4 to go) except now my husband is having a very hard finishing the treatments. Friday he was having such a rough day that he stressed out and could not breathe when they were setting him up for his treatment, so they had to cancel it.

To be continued.......


  1. Eva, I don't even have words to respond, but I wanted to leave a comment and let you know that I read your 3-part heart goes to you and your husband. Dealing with doctors, tests, surgeries, etc. are exhausting and truly beyond frustrating, and when dealing with life and death situations, you really want someone to get things taken care of and quickly! I've been sending prayers for you and your husband. I'm sorry for all you've both been through. I have no words of wisdom but hope that you have some comfort in knowing friends, like me, are thinking of you and loving you from afar. I wish I could wrap my arms around you both. Sending prayers of comfort, love.

    1. Thank you for your comment and your prayers Jennifer. Both my husband and I greatly appreciate them.

  2. This post was very interesting, I did not realize cancer reacted to chemo that way. Know just sharing that insight will probably help a lot of people. I remember with my dad and the lump on his neck he was going to dr every three months and had blood work done regularly and I could not understand either why no one spotted it sooner..Eva I hope your sharing your story is somehow in some way helping you, if nothing else you're getting feelings out..Im with Jennifer I wish I could just hug you and fight this thing with sword is drawn and I wish I could go into battle and slay this thing...and take it away from you both... lots of love my sister..
