Tears in the Keyboard

Tomorrow Joan has a blood test prior to seeing the Oncologist on Wednesday. He will have the results of the CT scan and we hope that it shows at least a slowing of the tumour growth. The recent SIRT treatment which was aimed solely at the 30-something liver tumours may give us hope for more time together.

This morning there were tears as we both thought, without words, that The Man will be giving us bad news. I think Joan is ready to forgo further treatment if the oncologist decides that it will not help. In that case, we will ask about a time span and try and do a couple of things on Joan’s bucket list.

Tears in the keyboard.


  1. Thank you for keeping us "out here" posted. Joan is a wonderful woman and I have so much respect for her. You will be in my prayers.

  2. "When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee." ~Isaiah 43:2
    March forth this week in full peace and confidence. God is with you and will sustain you!

  3. My heart is heavy as I read your words. Please give Joan a gentle hug from me and tell her I am sending much love and many prayers that you both have more time together........:-)Hugs

  4. I just wanted to say that I'm thinking about you Joan and hoping that your results are as good as they can be.

    Tears in my keyboard too :-(

    Hugs to you both xxxx
