  1. Yes. Only have one child. Can recall height, weight and time as well.
  2. Nothing until I was 51. At 54 it’s 5. Six if you count the Keytruda infisions I just stated.
  3. Always liked the Boston (first 2 albums at least) album covers. Yes usually had interesting album art.
  4. Her name was Alyssa. But she is apparently married to a cop. It was also her last day. She is starting grad school. Lol
  5. Sorry, been a busy day. Thank you for all the support, prayers and well wishes. First infusion went very well. In and out in about 3-3.5 hours including a office visit with the Dr, blood work and the infusion. The drive there and back took just as long. Lol I feel good. No noticeable side effects 12 hours later. Actually felt up to going to the boardwalk with my cousin and her family. Little tired now but I really didn’t sleep great last night. Cheesey
  6. A slight chance, but unlikely. Based upon the stage and grade when the cancer was discovered (stage 3/grade 3, with infiltration of the tumor into the IVC) metastaces was the ultimate outcome. Also due to the quickness that this particular spot/nodule appeared (not there to 6mm in 4 months) makes it highly suspicious. The other nodules present are static or have only grown slightly in the past almost 2 years. Too small to biopsy. Needs to be 1cm at least in order to be able to needle biopsy.
  7. Sometimes my life seems like the fight against Clubber Lang in Rocky 3. I get my ### kicked early but stumbles through then wins in the end. The phrase: “You ain’t so bad” is rattling around by brain! Lol https://youtu.be/I7krz_Krn4k
  8. Yes. 35 rounds every 3 weeks is 105 weeks or 2 years+. Hopefully not that long. The therapy won’t cure just stop the progression and shrink the tumor, hopefully. It’s a small spot, about 6mm, to start with so hopefully good results will enable shorter treatment. Trying to stay as positive as I can but it’s very difficult. It’s not in my nature.
  9. Combo drug therapy treatment for metastatic Renal cell carcinoma in my lung starts tomorrow morning at the Abramson Cancer Center in the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Therapy will be a combination of immunotherapy infusions of Keytruda and oral chemo therapy.of Inlyta. The infusions will be every 3 weeks for up to 35 rounds. The oral chemo is 2 pills daily. From what I’ve been told and read this particular combo has produced very positive results. Obviously I’m very nervous but at least active treatment will hopefully be better than the 6 week wait. My wife’s cousin, who is a doctor, is taking me for my first treatment. I think I’m her new pet project. Lol. But I’m okay with that. I’ll update this tread from time to time with my progress. Anyway, wish me luck and thanks for your continued support. Cheesey
  10. Mutual: probably zero, as far as I can tell. Attraction from my end: There was only 1 person that would have had tested my faithfulness if the feeling was mutual. But it wasn't so the point is moot.

  12. Thanks. Yeah, I hope so. The drug therapy won't cure just slow, and hopefully stop, the progression.
  13. So I figured it's time to update this. Unfortunately, this isn't going to be the most positive update I've provided. First, Monday was the 3 year anniversary of my wife's passing. Like all the milestone dates (birthday's, anniversaries, etc.) it was a very emotional day. My son is doing okay. He now has an insulin pump and a continuous glucose monitor for his diabetes (type 1). He still needs to do a better job of managing it. He was having a lot of low sugars, including one where he passed at at work and was taken to the ER by ambulance. That incident scared him. As a result of that, his Cardiologist pressed him hard to consider the placement of an implantable cardioverter defibrillator. One of the first signs of low blood sugar is a rapid heart beat, but the beta blocker he is on for his LQTS mutes that symptom. She wanted the ICD so he could come off the beta blocker. That surgery is scheduled for August 14th. I had a follow up doctors appointment with my oncologist on Friday. He said the most recent CT scan of the chest showed a new 5mm spot in the lung that wasn't there on the CT scan in November and PET scan done in February. Both the oncologist and radiologist that read the scan feel it's the Renal Cell Carcinoma metastasizing in the lung (one of the location kidney spreads to along with the thyroid and liver). The spot is to small for a biopsy, but based upon the size and grade of my tumor (Stage 3 Grade 3 with infiltration in the the IVC) re-occurance was very likely. I have the option of starting treatment now, or waiting. The treatment consists of a combination drug therapy of a chemo pill (Inlyta) twice a day and immunotherapy infusions (Keytruda) every three weeks. After talking to my wife's cousin who is a doctor, I decided to start the treatment sooner rather than later. I'll probably start the treatment in early August to work around my son's surgery and a scheduled vacation him and I are taking August 18-23 (driving trip to Washington, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago, Cleveland and Baltimore for baseball games). Other than the fact that I have, most likely, metastatic renal cell carcinoma growing in my lung, I feel pretty good physically. Emotionally I'm kind of a wreck, but I'll weather the storm because I have no choice.
