Rob asked me to start this blog so that his friends and family will have a way to keep up with what’s going on. I don’t know what I would have called this post, but Rob chose “the situation”. I’m not gonna lie, I would probably have used a string of 4 letter words with a generous dose of tears mixed in. So, we went with Rob’s idea:)
On Wednesday, we found out that Rob has squamous cell carcinoma on his tongue. We don’t know much right now. No idea the extent of the disease or the treatment options.
We are going to the Medical College of Georgia on Thursday, July 1st, to meet with the “tumor board”. Rob will be seen by an ENT surgical oncologist, radiologist, pathologist and hematologist. After they see Rob, the 4 of them will meet to discuss Rob’s case. A couple of hours later, we will meet with this team to discuss Rob’s treatment plan.
Please keep us in your prayers. Rob is hoping that this will be a VERY short blog with an awesome ending!
