The World's A Stage

We went to the medical oncologist (who will be called the chemo doc) and the pulmonologist (who will be called the lung doc) today. It turns out my doctor was wrong. The Big Guy is not stage three; he is stage four. More suckage.

BG starts chemo tomorrow. Don't get me wrong, I'm really glad all of these doctors are jumping right in and getting things going. But...it's a little scary that these doctors are starting things so fast. When was the last time you had a doctor start any treatment the very next day?

I gotta tell you, and let's keep it between us, I'm pretty fucking scared.

I am so sorry hon. I don't know what else to say besides we will pray for you and I'll ask my family to pray as well. While I am not the most religious person, the fam is and we'll all will try our best for you and the Big Guy.
Try to keep in mind that plenty of people make it through these things. I know I'm just a bloggy friend but seriously, if you need anything, let me know.

I am so sorry for what you are all about to go through. It is a good thing the docs are jumping on treatment so quickly, despite it being scary at the same time. Have faith! I will be sending prayers your way for all of you!

I am so sorry. It is a good thing the doctors are reacting so quickly. The sooner that medicine gets in there, the sooner it can get to work. Sending you thoughts and prayers.
