Well, ladies and gentlemen, the news is in…Brian’s cancer results are back from the Mayo Clinic.
The doctors diagnosed him with adult osteosarcoma (the adult part is sometimes questionable). And apparently, they told him that the type he acquired is so rare that the Mayo Clinic has only seen 15 cases where the more common type is about 1,500 cases per year.
Okay, so here’s the good news — Brian will not need chemotherapy and the doctors believe that he is clear of the cancer. They will continue to monitor him every 3 months instead of the normal 6 months, as a precaution.
Brian won’t be able to work for a while because he is still getting that new knee up to speed but it is coming along nicely and the doctors are pleased with his progress. And thin boy needs to put back on a few pounds. One step at a time, one day at a time.
I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes. I truly believe in the power of prayer.
Best wishes to you all from me and my daughter’s family.
