Teacher Wife was diagnosed 1 year ago this week

B-1 83

Recommended Posts

with stage IV adenocarcinoma and mets to the skull, ribs, sternum, femur, spine, hips, and humerous. 8 rounds (yes, e-i-g-h-t) of carboplatin/taxotere and 14 doses of full brain radiation (for leptomeningeal carcinomatosis) later, she's still alive. Tarceva was started in May, and it's kicking cancer's butt, even if she is not EGFR positive.


Thanks to God, Dr. Fosella, and M.D. Anderson she's still slugging it out.

So happy that things are going so well!!!

Prayers that the Tarceva will keep kicking the cancer's butt for a long long time and your wife has many more years of teaching!!

(Although teaching 5th grade science sounds like torture to me!!)

She will be in my prayers!

peace - janet

I've been following your posts at GRACE. Congratulations to Teacher Wife on her "anniversary" — and I'll be looking for a similar announcement this time next year! Don't worry, this annual event will not crowd out any of your other yearly celebrations, just make them more meaningful. Best wishes and Aloha,
