The telemed conversation with the oncologist/surgeon at Sloan Kettering in New York City took place on June 23. The purpose of this call was to discuss if surgery would be a benefit. The call was short because the determination was that any kind of surgery is not an option. In short, the risks far outweigh any potential benefits.  My cancer is too far advanced so any kind of procedure to remove a portion or all of the tumor would endanger organs and blood vessels. So going forward, the strategy is to continue the every three weeks of immunotherapy until something changes. I am not disappointed with this news. The thought of going through a risky surgery was worrisome and the immunotherapy is currently working to control the tumor growth. So now that that has been determined, it’s time to move forward in serving God, loving family and friends, and fishing harder and more often! A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. – Proverbs 17:22
