During the first few months of the year Jane was experiencing gastrointestinal problems. Our primary care doc began treating for most common issues, but the issues didn’t resolve. By March her symptoms increased, with exhaustion, shortness of breath, and overall physical weakness. A CT scan in mid-April showed evidence of cancer in the liver and got us a referral to the excellent cancer research and treatment system in our region, called City of Hope. The oncologist guiding us through the diagnostic process ordered a bunch more tests. His hunch is that the primary site is elsewhere in my body.  So we are moving on with blood work, PET scan, and biopsy.
