DH is really keeping his spirits up.
Got up this morning and got all ready for work!
Blew me away but I know that work is his diversion

Hoping for a great day.
Definitely a great update!

First, let me say I just read your post for the first time and am so glad things are turning out well. Prayers for continued success!!

My prognosis is good and I've booked my next WDW trip for April next year to celebrate.

Does anyone know of a travel insurer that doesn't cost the earth for cancer sufferers?

Also, my consultant oncologist advises that my fingerprints may have disappeared by the time I travel, any advice on passing through Orlando Intl with a passport but no fingerprints to scan?
I'm so sorry to hear about your trials. Good for you for planning a trip in the Spring!

Sorry I can't answer any of your questions. I've never been overseas for travel, so I'm absolutely no help!! Hope someone can answer though.

I would like to give everyone a HUGE THANK YOU for all your thoughts and prayers.

DH had his stitches from his surgery and his follow up appointment with his surgical oncologist on Wednesday and we received amazing news.

The biopsies from the tumors were not higher than they had origionally thought.
They were able to get all the tumors and cancer cells with good margins.
He DOES NOT need any further radiation!!!

We go back to the oncologist in 6 months.

DH will start physio next week and they are hoping that the numbness he has in his arm will eventually regain feeling. Heck if this is the only side effect I am over the moon.

Sorry it took a couple days to post but we have been celebrating
