A new problem May 29, 2014

Filed under: Uncategorized — lioutrue @ 8:57 PM

Unfortunately Shian-Ren has a new medical problem.  In April she was diagnosed with colon cancer and scans showed that it has spread to her liver. So there are two (and only two) growths. We consulted with surgeons and they determined that her relative lack of mobility made her a bad candidate for immediate surgery, recovery from which requires immediate moving around to get the gut going.  She is also a higher than normal risk for blood clots and pneumonia. So we decided to do a round of chemotherapy first, which hopefully will start next week.  We are all in good spirits and despite all the appointments, we have managed to keep our normal daily home routine, for the most part. My parents are visiting to help us out and as always our family and friends have been wonderfully supportive.  Shian-Ren is a rock and we are determined to fight this with our highest effort.  I’ll update things here from time to time but still will mostly talk about Ru-Jun, probably.

    Hi Shien-Ren and John, Chien-Wei Chang, Eva Chiang (my wife, also a Dukie), and me are all praying very hard for Shien-Ren. Shien-Ren, be strong and know that we’re all rooting for you!!! I will also ask my sister to pray for Shien-Ren.I appreciate you sharing the news with us.
