Thanks for asking....he is not looking all that great but apparently the treatment is going pretty well. They are now talking about doing radiation after the chemo, which they had ruled out before, and using a new experimental drug by May. The doctors are now saying at least a year instead of six months...sounds short but any additional time is a blessing! The chemo is hard on him, and he hurts a lot but hopefully it is worth it. The doctors actually sounded upbeat about how the cancer was reacting to the chemo.

And, my ILs are finally starting to tell people. It was getting so hard, we couldn't tell my family or our friends although we've been acting really wierd trying to cover up what's been going on. My DH talked with FIL's friend for an hour today about it, he said it was such a relief to be able to discuss it.

Thanks again for asking!

I am glad to hear that he is doing as well if not better than expected. I am also glad he has been given some more time and I hope that is an underestimate. Thanks for the update!

I am glad DH found some outlet.

HUGS!
