Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends update. Just getting used to it. Figured it would be an easy way to keep everyone updated in one spot. Just a little background. Mid February I thought I was getting oak allergies seemed worse this year. My feet starting swelling really bad. Next thing that happened was trouble sleeping at night. Problems breathing. Next morning went to hospital. They ran every test known to man. It was determined that I had Congestive heart failure. In running all the tests it was determined that I had nodules on my lungs. I never smoked. Fortunately my oncologist was on duty that weekend. We go back 12 years to my breast cancer days. He suggested a pet scan. The pet scan determined that I had kidney cancer which was quite advanced. Next step was a lung biopsy. This determined that I had lung cancer which had metastasized. Stage 4 the words you never want to hear. I was limited as to what they could do because of heart situation. Doctor said it was a new cancer not related to breast cancer.
