Our dear Uncle is being admitted tomorrow for treatment of Merkel cell carcinoma that has taken over his right forearm. This skin cancer is extremely rare . Mom and he have seen 5 specialist and he has a choice of 3 types of treatment. He finally decided on an isolated limb profusion . They put the chemo in the forearm , but it is a very complicated procedure that requires general anesthesia .. of course none of this is easy especially at age 83. He had 1/2 of his upper left lung removed due to an unrelated cancer 3 years ago. We are hoping for a 3-5 day hospital stay and hoping that within 2 weeks these horrible tumors will shrink and go away. We pray he doesn't have any complications and that he will be home in time for Christmas with us ! This cancer is very aggressive and unpredictable.. it is a fatal skin cancer.. but right now he has a 50/50 chance of it matastizing in 1 to 3 years .... so before you go to bed .. would you add him to your prayer chain ! We will keep you posted..


Merry hugs and Kisses,
Buttercup & Momma Pat

p.s. Marielle is doing good right now.. hopefully she will stay the course in time for Santa !
