Updates and 5K

Hello all! Just a short update from here. Patrick has been seeing Dr. D. He suggested having a debulking procedure done on his tongue to get rid of extra skin and scar tissue. Also, Patrick will have a PET scan the first part of December. As of right now, things are looking great! He still suffers from numbness and pain in all areas, but we are thankful that is all we're dealing with.

M finished her radiation therapy and is hoping to get back to work soon. The last part of her treatment really took the umph out of her. She's a trooper and doesn't complain much!

My best friend's mom is responding well to treatment. Chemotheraphy has decreased the size of her tumor, but causes her to be in pain. She had an adverse reaction to the second dose. A recent scan showed that her tumor has shrunk significantly already. I was so happy to hear that news!

Lastly, I'm participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5K on Sunday. If you are able, I'd love your support!
