first check-up

Wendy and Micah experienced a lot of holiday traffic on the way to UC Davis Medical Center yesterday. She suffered from nausea and pain on the way there and back.

Her appointment with Dr. Calhoun went well. Pathology reports continue to show that all cancerous tumors were removed. Dr. Calhoun is referring her to a new oncologist. The new oncologist might suggest chemotherapy and/or radiation. At this point Dr. Calhoun doesn't think either are necessary. He truly believes he got ALL of the cancer. She will have scans taken every month for awhile. At this point they aren't worried about the cancer coming back. Her Wound V.A.C. is continuing to do good work and it might be removed as soon as next week. Wendy's main incision site is looking great and her rate is down.

On their ride home Micah held her hand and told her not to worry about the cancer coming back. He said it is important they enjoy this moment, her being healthy.

Wendy's next appointment is next Wednesday at UC Davis Medical Center at 10 am. She is already not looking forward to the long and uncomfortable drive.

  1. I just recently discovered your blog. I want you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. My sister was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer, colon to the liver, about a year and a half ago. She was 34 at the time of her diagnosis. She is doing phenomenally well and her last scan was all clear of any cancer. One day at a time. : )
    God bless you all.
