STAGE 4BLarge B- Cell Lymphoma Burt went to the hospital January 7, 2018 thinking it was just a gallbladder attack or pancreatitis and Dr. Stated CT was negative for anything and had a cute pancreatitis and aftere 4 days the hospital sent him home. Due to increasing pain I brought him to a different hospital 3 days later thinking the pancreatitis was worsening although, nothing prepared us for what we would hear next. The Dr. Confirmed after repeating a CT Burt had a large mass in his stomach pushing or possibly attached to his pancreas! We knew we were facing the unknown and over the following 2 weeks Burt's Dr. Got intouch with a Dr. at Tampa General who would preform a EUS to what we thought was to confirm a Beign tumor.. once again we were faced with even more devastating news that the biopsy revealed Burt had Stage 4B Large B-Cell Lymphoma and that it was very aggressive. Burt ended up in the Tampa General ER a week later in severe pain not being able to stand or walk. They admitted him to be seen by his oncologist the next day instead of having to wait 3 week's for the appointment. Thankfully we went to ER because Oncologist stated he would not have made it to his first appointment because of how aggressive the cancer was it had spread to all of his lymph nodes, chest and stomach. Burt started treatment started while in Tampa General and was kept for a total of 2 weeks. As of March 23rd Burt has completed 3 of the 6 Chemo treatments and labs showed his cancer marker was going back up and Pet scan showed his tumor was shrinking slower then expected and cancer was still in all lymph nodes, stomach and chest. Burt has now completed 5 of the 6 treatments and it did shrink the cancer but, did not put it into remission.  Burt knows the treatments gave him a little more time to check off bucket list. Burt wants to travel the country before he gets to sick so we will be setting out across country and making his dream reality If you would like to help in his making his wish come true we would be so grateful for any help. We have acquired a truck and looking for camper now and then we will fulfill his last dream.Thank you and God bless

Hubby is finally home getting rest after a week in the hospital battling the Rhinovirus and will finish his chemo regiment next week. We know at this point it has not and will not cure him unfortunately. It did give us more time with him to travel and spend time with each other, our family and friends. We will continue to need your prayers ♡ this by far has been the hardest time in our lives even harder for hubby, we are just trying to live each day to the fullest and I know this will not get easier. I pray chemo gives us at least another year or more together making the most of everyday we have with each other and our family. We love and appreciate all your thoughts, prayers and support! We will start traveling the country starting in August we are ready to make memories and see all our family and friends along the way! It will take funds to travel and make the most out of his life he has left if anyone would like to continue to Share and donate we would be forever grateful Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers they are still needed #Grateful

I know I Haven't posted alot lately about skips battle but, Just been trying to stay positive now that we are near the end of his chemo I thought I would just say Its been so hard watching my superman trying to be the man he was 6 months ago I try to get him out on the weekends when he's feeling good enough even when it's only for a few hours and it takes alot out of him but, just planting a few plants and he could barely do it without taking lots of breaks and working through pain :( he trys to apologizes and says I am not the man I was 6 months ago that breaks my heart he's fighting hard and trys to stay in good spirits he is a fighter! Skip had ct scan a week ago and Doctor said cancer has not grown yet, it not depreciated by much either. Lymphnodes still enlarged and tumor still there and we have only one treatment left before we have to go a different route so we are in need of prayers and good vibes we pray for a miracle daily
I had a work party and we had a blast but wore skip out!
