"Hello my friends guess its time for another update though not a good one . Since last chemo treatment its been a rough go . Went in this past wednsday for another treatment but after explaining pains I`ve been having they decieded to hold off and give me a MRI and some chest x-rays .On thursday I was informed that more cancer spots were found on my vertebra which were never detected before . Also was having a hard time catching my breath and got very winded very fast that I was informed was pneumonia I was put on anti-biotics and chemo is too stop and start radation . friday morning I couldn`t move 2 feet with out being totaly out of breath so went to emergancy after calling cancer center .Had a procedure that with a needle in my back 2 quarts of fluid was drained from my lungs it was unbelieveable that that much fluid was in me . I came home on saturday and doing a bit better still very winded and in pain . But I need to stay positive . Will meet with radation doctor on tuesday and see where we go . This has been so unbelievablely hard to deal with the last month alone has been very hard but the doctors still believe they can get this under control so I have to believe in them . cancer wasn`t bad enough but this pneumonia thing really gets you . I just need to try and stay positive but its getting harder . Hope everyone is doing well your kind words mean the world to me . God bless you all my dear friends."









Rest in Peace Gary Perrotta
