I really hate having to post this...
Apparently this new procedure isn't going to work for Marshmallow... the laser won't penetrate deep enough to do much good. And unfortunately, the surgery is no longer an option. The cancer is spreading and there isn't a clean-cut line where the cancer could all be removed. So the only option now is to do radiation. Marshy went through the first round today and came home this evening. He'll be treated as an outpatient once a week for the next three weeks.
The radiation won't save him though... it's just going to give him a bit more time, and the medication he's on will alleviate the pain. I feel so terrible about the whole thing.
I'm sure Jillian will post more about what's going on when she can. She's been busy with school/work and caring for Marshy (and Graham).
Thank you for all your prayers and good thoughts for my little nephew. He really is a sweet little guy. I wish this wasn't happening.
