more not good news

I heard back from the melanoma specialist at Moffitt in Tampa. Meagan is ineligible for any trials there as well, for similar reasoning as NCI. The doctor was very helpful in his reply and suggested a potential treatment protocol using already approved chemo and biological drugs to run by Dr. Kaplan. Although he said it is a very difficult treatment to get through. With a small success rate of uncertain duration. And he also said about Meagan's status in general, "This is certainly a very difficult situation".  Given his stature and expertise in the melanoma world, that was not great to hear. Meagan took it pretty hard, and the gravity of the situation is setting in.

So how do you live each day joyfully, fully, and with gratitude and appreciation for all we have, when options are closing down?
