The pathology report is in.


Albert had a follow-up with the endocrinologist and she gave us a copy of the pathology report.

The parathyroid that was removed was confirmed non-cancerous.

It also confirmed that the type of cancer that was left on his heart is extremely rare and is fairly aggressive.

It appears to be stage 3 and is also in his lymphatic system.

None of this is very optimistic, but our next step is the gather as much information as possible before moving forward. 

Tomorrow my mission is to find an oncologist and make an appointment at MD Anderson in Houston to get their opinion. 

The oncologists will let us know what all this really means and what our medical options are.

Thanks for all your kind words, we really need them right now when we are both exhausted and feeling down.
