John was first diagnosed in July 2007 with CNS Lymhoma. His mass was in the Left Frontal Lobe and crossing the midline. We found out later that he was given a 40% chance of survival. He underwent 10 rounds of High dose methotrexate. Things were going pretty good. Then in September 2009 I started noticing little things that you could explain away. He kept complaining of eye floaters and seemed a little out of balance. His optomologist at the time, said he had a cataract. Thanksgiving 2009 he was having a hard time speaking and kept dozing off. A couple days later he couldn't sign his name. We thought he was having a stroke, darn it. The CNS Lymphoma had returned with ocular lymphoma this time. He had the cancer in 6 different spots in the brain. He again had 9 rounds of Methotrexate plus the addition of CHOP treatment. He currently is receiving Temodar for six months. We are afraid his ocular lymphoma may be back. UGH! His attitude is so awesome, he makes me ashamed of being afraid of the unknown. Prayers are appreciated! Well he did it again, he fought back and went for 20 rounds of radiation to his eyes. At the moment, no active lymphoma cells in his eyes! Dec. 2011 John is battling CNS Lymphoma for the 3 rd time and it is also in his spinal fluid. John and I value quality of life, again John opted for the chemo cocktail. It put his cancer back into remission. July 10, 2012.. we are visiting the doctor for the next step . The next step was low dose brain radiation, followed by 2 rounds of cytarabine. My poor John, but he seems to fight through it all. Finally done at the end of October 2012. It is now March 20, 2013 and it has been confirmed that John has lymphoma cells in his right eye. Next step is to check out brain involvement. He is scheduled to have the fluid removed from his eye next Wednesday and then in a couple of weeks start the methotrexate injections in the eye. My poor John. I am amazed at his strength and my calmness.
