The problem is that I guess Liver Cancer is really only cured with a Liver transplant. And if the cancer spreads to outside of the liver, Ed won't be a great candidate for a transplant. Apparantly he already isn't a great candidate because of the way his liver ruptured (or something like that. I am not clear on the specifics).
If he doesn't qualify for a transplant, they will treat the tumors as they come with the spot-chemo method they used last time until it doesn't work anymore. And that could work for a really long time. Hopefully Ed's cancer is super slow growing and so if he couldn't get a transplant, he wouldn't have any new tumors for a while.
So... Ed's next scan is scheduled for June 13th. Obviously the scan will show what as already happened. But I am asking for prayers for Ed, Faith and Phil for this next scan. I am hoping for some super great news.
Thank you for all of your prayers! This is definitely not something I envisioned Phil and I would be dealing with so early in our marriage. All your support means a lot to me.
Love, Mrs. Janney
I just thought this post needed a picture. I can't remember where I got it from.
