Prayers needed

I spent the yesterday and today at Methodist Hospital Med-Center. Came in to have a blocked salivary gland removed from inside of my lower lip. Dr. Don Donovan, the head of Ortholarynolgy at Baylor did the surgery. He sent it to the lab and it has cancer cells. So, I spent the night.

I had a PET scan done today to see if it is anywhere else. Hopefully they got it all in the one spot inside my lip. There are about 6 - 8 types of cancer that it can be and I won't know until Tuesday what kind. I do know that it is rare, only 2 in 100,000. You might say Murphy's Law. Some the surgery is all that is needed and some require an assortment of treatments. That is where my friends come in. Keep me in yours prayers. Your prayers helped Caroline come home cancer free after the non smokers lung cancer was removed. She is doing great.

Thanks,
Mark

Ride 'em if you got 'em.

Re: Prayers needed

Some of the best medical care is in Houston as evidenced by The Methodist Health System and Baylor College of Medicine trained physicians. You are in good hands. All the best to you.

Re: Prayers needed

Update

Prayer worked again!


I went back to the doctor this afternoon. The PET scan came back no cancer anywhere. Not even around my mouth where the cancer was removed.


I have Adenoid Cycstic Carcinoma. It is rare and effects the coating on nerves.
They got it all in the surgery. I will take a round of radiation to make sure that it won't come back anytime soon.


I couldn't ask for a better report from my doctor and the oncologist that I will be working with.


This is the best group of guys and girls any friend could ask for. You have been there whether it was how to change out quick disconnects, anything to do with the bike or prayer when needed.


Thanks again,
Mark

Ride 'em if you got 'em.

Re: Prayers needed

Glad to hear that you came through this with flying colors.

And a huge thanks to Dr. Donovan and the staff at the Methodist Hospital Med-Center and Baylor College of Medicine for catching this, and taking care of it. The skill and compassion shown by these professionals who have dedicated their lives to helping others is outstanding, and something to be very thankful for.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

That's terrific news! Glad we can be here when you need us.

My experience has only been with BCM, but I think that little section of town just northwest of Reliant Stadium has the most concentrated population of highly skilled medical professionals anywhere.
