On March 6th we had an appointment in Rochester with the oncology department and a follow-up with one of the surgeons. They have decided to do chemotherapy. The good news is he can have the treatments in Mason City at the Mercy Cancer Center. On March 21st we meet with an oncologist in Mason City to determine the schedule. Dennis’s cancer is called spindle cell rhabdomyosarcoma and it is usually found in children or young teenagers. It is very rare for adults to get this type of soft tissue cancer and therefore, their data for treatment is limited. However, they have found at Mayo a pediatric regimen of chemo treatments benefits the patient. He will have an an usual schedule which involves several weeks, but not every day and not every week! When he does have a treatment, he will be an inpatient. On the 21st, we will find out the start date and proceed from there! The surgeon said he is progressing well and everything is healing well. That is always good to hear!! Again, we are so appreciative of everything that has been done for us and all the support and prayers we have received. Thanks- all of you are the best!!
