    Thank you all for the good wishes and to Kathy for posting the link to my caringbridge for an advanced update. It looks like the swelling that was seen on the CT scan is most likely not a growth of the cancer and there is no mechanical blockages anywhere. So that is good news. My tumor marker is still high, but it is the lowest it has been since – well it is the lowest we have ever seen it.

    So that is all very encouraging. I am still dealing with some ascites and there are mixed feelings on whether or not it is cancer related and how to treat it. I certainly hope that it will resolve soon and that it is not a sign of advancing peritoneal cancers. There are mixed opinions on all of that.

    Thank you again for all of your support. I continue to wish you the best in your own struggles.

    That is wonderful news. I pray the chemo continues to work! Sounds like Dr Gores is an angel, and Mayo is doing an amazing job taking care of you. Safe trip home!

    Well Rick, I wish I could say something to make things better for you. Good luck, hang in there, one day at a time, believe me I wish I could. All I know is I have found great support right here on this site that nobody else can give. Whenever I look at other peoples posts it makes me feel better knowing I am not alone in this. I don’t feel better because someone else is having the same pain and downright crappy things going on as my wife does. I just feel better. Hopefully your day does get better. I am very fortunate in having three daughters with me to care for Judy. Sometimes I feel so alone but I’m not. Wish I could be there with your wife to give her some comfort. Tell her to look here and she will find it. Tommy
