Radiation update

Well I kinda thought chris was going to start keeping the blog updated but I guessed wrong lol well since the last post chris went through 15 rounds of high dosage radiation. We are actually headed to to the feist weiller cancer center for an appointment with dr. Nair right now. Chris hasn't had a pet scan or MRI since the radiation and I am assuming this appointment is to get those scheduled. Physically chris is suffering from severe fatigue. I don't know how long this is suppose to last for but will talk to the dr about it today. Mentally neither one of us are doing that great. Depression and anxiety have plagued our home and it's a hard thing to cope with. I really don't know how to hold it together sometimes. I just pray that God will bring both of us peace. I know we are blessed but I don't always know how to feel blessed. If there are any spouse/caretakers out there reading this I am sure you can understand. I don't really want to talk anymore about this as I could go on and on but just keep us in your prayers because if there is one thing I do know and that is prayer works. I will let everyone know when chris has his next pet scan. I just want to hear the words all clear! Now that would be an awesome Christmas present. Love you all xo kendra

I found your husbands blog and then your link on a post he had... I'm looking for information on the nose bleeds he suffered from. I am a Stage 3B melanoma patient currently on interferon and a gut feeling it has spread... my onc does not agree and is draging her feet.

Hi I am so sorry you are having to go through this. My husband suffered from nose bleeds from the tumor in his sinus cavity. It's a rare place for a melanoma to pop up so hopefully you can rule that out.. But if you can I would voice my concerns and try to get an MRI ASAP for the head if they do not stop. Also this time of year is notorious for nose bleeds due to the drying heaters during the winter. God bless you , keep a positive attitude always and if you ever need to vent we are here to listen xo kendra
