Why is it taking so long to get the biopsy results? Can't they put a priority on it? Since he can't have a peg now, can he get a nasal feeding tube? What's he getting for food? IV feeding? Since he is in so much pain, I would think these docs would push for the results as soon as possible.

Tell him we miss him and are thinking of him.

They haven't mentioned a nasal feeding tube, which we never even thought about. He is eating some food. It has to be soft enough where he can mash it up to get it down. We feel like you do. Why aren't they pushing for the results? I guess this where the rubber meets the road for our faith in God. Jim has a strong constitution and he's very bone-headed. It's a hereditary thing, not just with him but with his siblings, too. LOL We got it from our parents. lol He's a fighter. He keeps telling me he's not giving up, yet. Now, whether he says that because he thinks that's what I want to hear or not, I don't know. One thing I know, whatever my brother decides to do or not to do, I will support him. I love him. And this is hard to see him going through all of this. He's been one tough cookie all of his life, never afraid to tackle the seemingly impossible. Thanks for just being here for him as well as us, his family. Love to you all, Carol

Carol,

Please send him my well wishes also! I know he is a fighter and will beat this again (whatever it is). I just wish he wasn't in so much pain.

He is one tough cookie, for sure, but he has got to feel the love and strength of his real siblings and all us adopted siblings sending him strong good wishes for relief from pain soon and another battle won against this insideous cancer.

I feel so horrible for missing this post. Carol, please tell EZJIm that my prayers are with him and I am putting him on our churches orayer list as well. I miss him so much even though I have never met him. He was one of the first ones to be an encouragement to me when I joined the forum back May with my first round of this crap. Anyway, I am praying for you and his family as well. Keep us updated.

Carol, Im so sorry to hear of Jims latest struggles. He called me about a week ago and told me how bad he was hurting. Im glad he has the pain under control.

Ive just gone thru the jaw reconstruction and its not an easy proceedure. He is strong minded and that will help him get thru this. Please feel free to ask me any questions about this proceedure you might have.

Im sorry I havent been online lately. Im recovering and typing inst very easy for me right now. Please give Jim my love and let him know I said it will be ok. If I can do it, he can too!

Carol,
I know this is hard on you to see your brother in so much pain. The waiting game we have to play with this disease really stinks. We're sending positive healing energy his way. Looking forward to seeing his posts again! You are both in our prayers.
