    Yeah its not easy. My wife has had cancer also. But she has gone almost 5yrs now with no signs of it returning. The medicine and technology they have now makes things much better than they use to be.

    Woof, so you've had your dealings with it. I do keep hearing that there's been many advancements in recent years, so thats helpful to know. Its even taking its toll on me. I've been slightly dizzy and weak for a little over a week now, the stress is just so immense.

    Well, some. It looks to be AML (acute myeloid leukemia). What they can't seem to figure out is her platelets are normal and her white blood cells are near normal, which is unheard of in leukemia patients. The only guess they have is that they found it "extremely freaking early" (doctors' exact words). Plus she feels fairly good, at least when she isn't anemic.

    Yeah that is good news. And be thankful you live so close to M.D Anderson. People from all over the country come down here just to go there. Mainly cause they are the best.

    Yeah, they think she's definitely got a lot going for her. Wednesday we go back for chemo and the final results on the biopsy, which will tell us a lot (like prognosis & treatment).

    Here i set beside my mom while she is being transfused, two units today. Saw the doc earlier, he says her leukemia has a cell mutation that will make remission harder, as well as a greater chance of relapse.

    But today we thought she would start chemo, alas that is not true. Apparently its going to be another week to begin due to her insurance hasn't approved the treatment yet.

    Her white blood cells seem to be dropping now also.

    Dude... insurance is getting worse and worse by the second. And if something doesn't change come this November... it's going to get even worse.

    You've got so many people supporting you, her and your family.... cell mutation plus another week won't stand a chance against the strength that surrounds your entire family. Be strong brother, we've got your back.

    Ha, for sure! Nothing greater than the power of God.

    Once again, thanks guys. Positive reinforcement is such a great thing when something like this happens and when your mind starts to run crazy. You guys have been great, and if i can ever repay the favor let me know.

    Consider it paid, Jake. I don't think anybody here will keep score

    Went back to MD again today to start chemo, and once again delayed by the insurance. There is a specific chemo to target that cell mutation but its still in trial till they can get it approved. After leaving we got a call saying the insurance denied that specific chemo. So the new plan is to go back on Friday to start the regular chemotherapy. Insurance companies suck.
