Honestly, we have been thinking so little about Steve and thinking of so many around us. In February we mourned the one year loss of our sweet friend, Jennifer. My friends Melissa and Sylvia both lost their spouses within the last few weeks. And, most recently, my friend Kara had surgery on a bleeding brain tumor. It's been a tough, tough last few weeks in the melanoma community and honestly, that's where our minds have been.
|We miss you, Jenn!!|
|Get well, Kara!!!!|
Not only does Steve get scan results tomorrow, but we also say "goodbye" to his doctor, Dr. Kevin Kim. Steve has been with Dr. Kim since 2012 (when he was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma). Dr. Kim and his staff have been amazing. Dr. Kim is moving to California to practice there. There will be many, many, many tears shed tomorrow!!! Regardless of Steve's scan results, tomorrow is going to be a VERY, VERY hard day for us both. Dr. Kim has been so very patient with me over the last two years. He lets me ask as many questions as I would like. (Even when the questions don't necessarily pertain to our situation, he let's me play the "what if" game.) Steve was given
6-9 months to live when diagnosed. Dr. Kim and his treatment recommendations have Steve with us today (NED at that!!) 26 months after diagnoses. Dr. Kim will be missed tremendously.
|We will miss Dr. Kim more than words can express!!!!|
Steve has an ultrasound and 3 Dr. appointments scheduled tomorrow. I will update just as soon as we get results! Thank you all for all of your support, prayers, thoughts, messages, texts, calls, etc. We love you all! <3 <3 <3
