After months of feeling bad, having little/no energy, and zero appetite - we headed to the ER on Saturday, 2/22, in the afternoon to try and get some answers on Neil’s deteriorating health. Blood work and a CT scan gave us the answers we didn’t necessarily want to hear but weren’t totally caught off guard with either given his symptoms. The imaging showed a mass on his kidney and several spots where it has metastasized to his lungs. We’re unclear if this cancer spread from his prostate or is separate - we hope to get lots of questions answered Monday morning, 2/24 when we are to report to UCHealth’s oncology offices first thing in the morning to set a pretty aggressive course of treatment- first up to probably remove the kidney. We spoke to most of our family and friends on Sunday - and making, and receiving, tons of calls throughout the day... just wanting to let everyone to know what’s up...there’s a tough road ahead - the fight is on!!!
