ok, quick update. Saw the oncologist today, still no clear primary but they are running another genome sequence on the sample taken from T9 during the spinal surgery. I'll be doing a round of radiation on spine and hip lesions in a couple weeks. Then it should be a double of immunotheries for system treatment to kill as much of the cancer as possible. Also a medication to help rebuild bone as we attack the bone lesions.
I'm feeling pretty good no considering it has been less than 2 weeks since the spine surgery, and feel pretty positive about things going forward as the plan is coming together.
Mom was down for the weekend, I think it did both of us a bunch of good.

We text back and forth throughout the day. Without getting all up in his business, I don't think he'll mind me telling you he'd had some treatment, with no ill effects, he's still working from home, and doing as well as he can.
My thoughts, for the little value they carry...are that he dealing with the same day to day stuff we all deal with, plus the added doctor and hospital visits, and maybe a pipe or two, and all this leaves him little time to post.
I know he knows how much we all care, and I'll pass along your words.
