Actually, I'm begging prayers tonight.
Tom had a CTscan on Monday. Afterwards, his oncologist said that the lungs looked fine, but that the head/neck reading hadn't been done. Yesterday, the doc called to say the radiation doc saw something 'worrisome' and we have an appointment tomorrow for an exam.

We are, of course, hoping and assuming that what is showing is scar tissue or something. Prayers, however, would be welcome.
Yesterday marks the one-year anniversary of his first chemo treatment....
Love you all
Nicki

Hello Nicki,

You don't have to beg for any support on this website. Me and many others will be sending prayers your way. Give my best to Tom and I am hoping this is something minor that turns out well for him.

Love Ya, Danny Boy

My prayers are daily with all cancer victims and their families. I will definately add Tom to my special list.

May God give you comfort and hope,

Dear Nicki

Sending you and Tom positive energy for your examination. Most probably scar tissue which naturally has to be double checked. Thank goodness for thorough doctors.

Love and light from Helen
