In mid-January 2017, Stewart was first diagnosed with throat and tonsil cancer. Its taken a month of visits back and forth to the ENT, Internal medicine, catscans, biopsies, petscans, radiologist, and oncologist at West Clinic to prepare him and get his treatment schedule lined out. He will begin treatments of chemo and radiation MOnday Feb 27. Radiation will be 5 days a week for 7 weeks (or 35 treatments, whichever comes first) and chemo will be every Tuesday. The doctors say the first couple of weeks he won't notice much change, but after that, he may lose his taste buds and throat will start hurting from the radiation, and he will have to go to soft foods or liquids only. He is given a 92% prognosis, but we are aiming for 100% recovery! Prayers needed for his continued strength, radiant complete healing in recovery, and that he can achieve his goal of going with his 2 sons on a 2 week Scout hiking/camping trip to Philmont in New Mexico in June. Will keep you posted as his treatments progress. Thank you all for your prayers.
