Well today was another drs appt with Joe, except this one in Philly.
The dr went over the PET scan again.. and he is extremely concerned about the area in his left leg.... much more concerned than the other dr seemed to be.
I can read people pretty well.. and I saw defeat and sadness in the dr's eyes today.
We actually had to ask a few questions and that is when the dr just read the results... Sadly.. the cancer is everywhere.. and in bones.....and bloodstream was mentioned. The dr suggested getting in contact with the radiology dr for another round of radiation to target the leg area.
It seems as if all the hard work and treatments have lost their power.
Joe found out that the cancer is scattered throughout his lung...in a rib...of course his leg.. and newest mention.. his spine. This last item just blew Joe away.
Not sure what he is going to decide to do... I am really not sure if he wants to go through with radiation again since he got an honest result from the PET scan. His leg was REALLY bothering him today and by the end of the travels, he was limping badly.
I think now is the time for people to start offering him what his options are,, and what steps he can take. Home care etc.
Will let the info of today sink in for a bit.. then put in my two cents.
I told sis today on the way home.. she is livid.... tomorrow,I get to tell our parents..OHH yay!
