Oncology (from the Ancient Greek onkos (ὄγκος), meaning bulk, mass, or tumor, and the suffix -logy (-λογία), meaning "study of") is a branch of medicine that deals with cancer.
Meet Dr. Michael Gordon, Jim’s Oncologist.
When you first learn that you or someone you love have a cancerous mass, your brain seems to shut down and you move on autopilot. Trying to find an oncologist that you trust with your life is an overwhelming experience. (And it is as much my life as it is Jim’s.)
We were very blessed because Jim’s regular doctor knew Dr. Michael Gordon and referred us to him. He was definitely an answer to our prayers. He has been with us through every step of our journey with cancer.
Today he had more good news for us. Jim’s scans came back clean. No signs of cancer.
However, the fear and anxiety before the follow up appointment consumes your days and nights. The relief after talking with Dr. Gordon is almost beyond words.
We will do this cycle all over again in May. At that time we will also celebrate our one year anniversary of being cancer free.
To celebrate – Jim went fishing. (Did you really expect anything else?) John went with him today. John celebrated his 90th birthday this year and is going strong.
John caught one small fish that went back in the water to grow up. The guys had a wonderful time and will be going again.
