For those of you who are wondering, this is John's largest tumor. It's not very big, but it is near the airway from the esophagus. It hasn't grown at all since we found out about it. All the other little gray dots are tumors as well, but aren't quite the size of his big one. It's so weird all those tumors are inside John.
John has been missing a lot of work these past couple of weeks due to headaches and being extremely tired. He has been keeping in tough with his oncologist and he want to get a MRI of John head this next week. I'm not sure of his reasons yet, but we will see the Doctor when John gets his treatment next week.
I guess you could say I am a lot nervous and just trying to take it day by day. Please keep John in your prayers and hope for the best for him. Thank you!!

Lately it seems like everything is sorta getting back to normal. We moved into a little house still in Kaysville down the street from our old apartment. We are just renting and loving the yard. John is still working and doing pretty good.He started to get these headaches, we think because of sinuses. That's the only concern we have had. He is now on a antibiotic for it and we think that they are helping, because he hasn't had a headache since. John wants to get surgery on his eye again so it will stop watering. So we are working with the insurance on that right now to see if they will cover it.
We are just going through our days and things are normal but every three weeks we are reminded that John needs another treatment for this lung cancer he has. I am so thankful that John is doing as well as he is and that he at least has an option to do something. It's better than nothing. (John hates this picture, but I LOVE it!!)
