I want to thank everyone for all the support, prayers, thoughts that so many have been sending me. This really helps with my spirits. For a while I had zero hope. My hope is elevated some. I'm still alive 5 months into this and I feel fine. The chemo is being kind to me. I don't have any nausea, I have some fatigue, and I'm slowly losing my hair.

Back in January I went to the Mayo Clinic for a second opinion. They did an MRI on my chest and abdomen in order to get a better look at the tumors and see how many there were. The hope was to see that there wasn't much spread in the cancer and that I would be a viable candidate for surgery to remove the tumors. Instead what they found was that the cancer has already spread to my liver. There are many large tumors through out my entire liver. This removes all options for surgery including the possibility of a liver transplant. It seems like every time I go in for an exam the news gets worse. The only option for me at this point it is chemotherapy. I've been doing chemo since the middle of January.
