Our first news from Rick's CT scan Thursday September 29 was not at all what we were expecting. I think we both woke up the next day hoping it was a dream, not a reality. We thought he was having stomach or gastro issues but scan revealed tumors  on lung, spleen, liver and stomach lining. When Dr Bressler called that same afternoon, he told Rick - this doesn't look good. 

Friday, his oncology doctor since his melanoma, Dr Patel, squeezed Rick in for an appointment. He told us he was going to run tests but the pattern of tumors was highly suspicious, indicating cancer.  Saturday when Rick couldn't keep food down, the doctor told us to go to the ER. Rick was severely dehydrated so they gave him fluids and then admitted him to the hospital. And we were off on this journey....

Keeping up with all the calls and texts is hard, so we're  using the Caring Bridge website to keep everyone updated on what's going on. I promise to  post regularly. 

Rick and I are so thankful for family and friends who care and are supporting us with their love, prayers and actions. Your words of hope and encouragement, calls, texts and visits  mean  the world to us. 

Love and hugs, 
Rick and Candy
