Yes,
They started as a small patch under her right breast..now covers entire torso, from waist, around to back, both breast, and up on neck. The Dr said, one good thing, with Cam, you will be able to see if the new treatment is working from the skin's response...the flip side is we can see the cancer spreading waiting for next Tues.

Good news, is other than a lymph node in neck the PET/CT shows only a possible early recurrance of IBC... no other organs involved.

I dont get why they make people wait til Tuesday? What is wrong with going right then and starting treatment. I am not a very patient person, I can only imagine how frustrated and helpless you must feel.

Praying HARD for both of you!!!

Wow - very scary. But yes...luckily no other organs are involved. I read an article in The Science magazine...it was about bc actually being a form of skin cancer - titled: A Case of Mistaken Identity!

I posted the article in FIGHT LIKE A GIRL - Breaking News.

Thinking about you two!

Well, good news is there isn't any mets other than Cam's skin. Gosh, I hope that she isn't in too much pain and that she will see the skin mets disappear with tx. That will be great! I am very hopeful she is going to do well.

Poor Cam. Geez, I hope she's not too miserable. I cannot understand the long wait either. Prayers are still going up for Cam and you.

Keep up the prayers and best wishes....they are working...Tuesday is only a wake up away.. Cam found out today that she got in the third leg of the trial..the one we wanted...This is the one that gets both drugs...the other arms get one or the other...and then after a month get both. So we are glad that she will get all they can up front.

Her skin mets still spreading...now the skin is real hard. lumpy and starting to break thru...so she could not wait any longer. She is starting to get a little depressed about everything, and I am not much help, I have already gone in to summer reruns on all my stories and jokes. But when she needs a laugh, I can just have her read Em or Shirley...look at Ginger's ski helmet, or let her read the logic of Prazz of the other board.

Thank all of you Ladies...I don't know how I can ever pay you back for the support all of you have been.

I have been remiss in keeping friends informed on what is happening. Cam is doing well, the area of skin involvement is still shrinking, and she feels much better than she has felt in months. She played Bingo in the "community room" last night winning three times, then sat out side in the breezeway for over an hour with seven or eight neighbors, just doing the "front porch" thing.

We have fit in fairly well to life here, I volunteered to do all the mowing and weed eating here at the apartments as well as sort of the handyman role. I also serve as sort of taxi to and from the Hospital for guest here. My most enjoyable trip there, was the other night when a man had been waiting two years for a heart transplant with time becoming very crucial, got the call in the middle of the night. He is now doing great.

The Doctors and research people are very enthused by Cam's progress. I hope and pray that this is a treatment program that will keep working for her, and be available soon for others. Keep praying, It works.

Our Love to all of you.

So glad to hear from you. I'm even "gladder" than Cam is doing so well. I bet it warms your heart to see her feeling well and socializing with the other people.

Wow, Herbie, you're keeping busy. Don't you know it's too hot to do yard work? Are you CRAZY!?

What a heart warming story about the man with the new heart. And what a great man and dh you are. That's my pat on the ole shoulder for today. :clown:

Herb, what an AWESOME post! Praises for Cam's positive response to treatment and double praises for you being involved with the man and his new heart! What an incredible testimony you and Cam will have when this is all behind you! Give Cam a lick on the cheek from Tessie... :lol:

All is going well, now a proud owner of a Camry that replaced the carjacked car...
Today would be a nice day for any prayers for Cam..X-rays, CT, and PET/CT being done..All appears good, but always nervous on scan day.
