Update #17

Long time no talk. Last time we checked in, shit was kinda growing in my lungs, but very little. Since then, I switched drugs (back to Folfox) and have done 4 treatments. We did another scan at the end of January and it was similar to the last scan – everything stable except for a […]

Update #16

First, just have to thank everyone that came out last week for the benefit at MadeWest. It was an amazing event. It felt great to see so many friends and feel the support and love from everyone. The community had a really tough week because of the fires and I’m just thankful that so many […]

Update #15

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Just wanted to shoot out a little update. No scan update since the scan a couple months ago, but I am finishing up my 12th cycle of the Folfuri + Avastin chemo today.  The aggressive path we went for in the summer was to do a full 12 cycles. Most patients don’t […]

Anniversary #7

Today’s our seventh anniversary. We got back home last night after celebrating my brothers wedding over the weekend (!!!!) out in the desert in Joshua Tree. It was beautiful, fun and I had an amazing time celebrating with family and friends from both sides. I was scheduled to get chemo today as we pushed it passed […]

Update #14

Great news. Scan came back with awesome results! They showed no new growth anywhere in the body. All that’s visible from the CT scans is on the lungs. And there, the nodules have either shrunken or stayed the same (about 4mm in size) Liver and colon are still all clear. Basically this is the second […]

Not too much has changed medically since the last update (which I forgot to email out, so you can check it out here if you missed it) We’ve basically been traveling a lot..,planning trips around my treatment schedule. Late August we went camping up in the Sequoia’s and […]

Update 12

Cancerversary. I guess that’s a thing. Mine was a few weeks ago. I wanted to post something but didn’t. I think I was scared to plant a flag anywhere along the path. I did write down my thoughts on the day and I’m posting it below. But first, some good news to pass along. We […]

Update #10

Hi Everyone, Long time no update. Recovery from surgery has gone well, albeit slowly. Finally, in the last two weeks, I’ve started to feel a lot less pain and I’ve been able to do more activities, like a 2 mile hike last weekend. I can also finally start picking up Nora again which is obviously […]

Update #8

Hi All! Allyson here! Ian’s still groggy but made it through surgery and everything went wonderfully!! They were able to cut off the bad left lobe of the liver and saw no tumors in the good lobe…great news! The good lobe was in great shape and after an ultrasound saw no visible metastasis in there. […]
