Who's On 1st

Update on my wife's battle with cancer!

Recommended Posts

Cathy saw the doctor today and received some good news.

Blood work looking good' date=' tumors markers/ numbers are down. Which is a good sign that this series of chemo is working for now. She is down to 220 from 770. She will start back on chemo next Tuesday Aug.6th.

So we shall see how it goes. She had a second surgery last Aug. and after they removed many tumors, her numbers were down to normal. ( below 35). Then the tumors grew back.

Hopefully this will keep going in the right direction!

Keep those prayers coming.[/quote']

My wife Cathy had the chemo yesterday ( Aug. 6th ) and so far she is responding good with it. Still lot of pain, But, she said it has decreased a bit. Down from a 10 to maybe an 8. It has been a long time since I have heard her say anything but a 10. Her worst time is usually a day or so after.

Her next round of chemo will be on Sept. 3rd.

Doctor wants to do a few more rounds then do some scans to see where she is with the tumor markers ( cancer numbers).

Please keep the good thoughts and prayers coming. She has been through a lot since Sept. 12/2011

Sounds like Cathy has been through pure hell for almost two years now. I'm so sorry that she has had to endure such pain. Thankfully, she is still able to receive chemo and get some relief from the pain. Cathy is a real fighter, Wayne. God bless her and also you for standing by her side through all her ups and downs. Unfortunately, a lot of downs (I know that from our private conversations). I know it's her battle, but she needs you by her side to keep up the good fight and I know you've done this. You've been a wonderful, encouraging partner, for sure.

I think about her often and will continue to pray for Cathy and also for you, Wayne.

God bless Wayne and Cathy and their family. My prayers are with you both.

Its time like this that "outsiders" just don't get how much the Hangout can mean to all of us. We are way more than just a bunch of fanboys on a message board.

What strength and courage both Cathy and Wayne have shown over the past couple of years! This is what love and life (sometimes unfortunately) is all about. May Cathy continue to receive more abundant love every remaining day of her life!

There is nothing I could add to this. Our prayers are with you, Wayne and Cathy.

Wayne, I'm so sorry to hear this. May God grant Cathy comfort and peace in her final days. I hope you can somehow find comfort knowing He will always be by her side. She will never be alone. That is also my prayer for you. May God also give you both the strength to endure what each day brings. God bless you both.

This. I've met Wayne and Cathy a few times at Baysox games, but we've obviously interacted quite a bit on this message board as well as through Facebook. My heart is very heavy for the two of them today, and for me that means that it's more than 'some guy I know from the internet'. You nailed it Dip...this community means a lot to a lot of us and I'm grateful for that.

God bless you, Wayne & Cathy. I hope you both find peace and comfort.

    • Money: The owners want money. I question how many of them would Rather win, if winning cost them money. With that in mind, it stands to reason they’ll only make moves this summer if they can make money off of those moves. there’s no concession money, no parking money, there’s no ticket sales there’s nothing except advertising money, and that would arguably be less because the playoffs are so diluted this year. Therefore it also stands to reason that they won’t feel much incentive to make impact moves. That could actually be good for the Orioles, because those teams might be willing to incrementally improve rather than making a big blockbuster. But that means anybody approaching the Orioles is going to be wanting to give up prospects who are far away; high risk and high reward. Ergo, I anticipate a lot of interest in our better guys, but not any immediate excitement coming back in the event of a trade.
    • I'm of the opinion that Elias will be listening closely to offers for anyone on the roster regardless of what our record is in this truncated season. I don't think having a fluke of a winning record changes his mindset on roster management this year one bit.

    • Not necessarily. He could just have easily been worn down by the end of the year given the rigors of a full college season, multiple levels of the minors, the award circuit, media associated with being 1-1 (and the travel), etc. Or numbers are random flukish chance in SSS.
    • He got hot in Aberdeen and then got moved to Delmarva  where he got 46 PAs. Would I have liked to have seen him hit a little better against that competition, sure, but he also was at the end of a long season that started for him in January/February.  Like I said, I'll worry about Rutschman if I see him struggling over a full minor league season. He's got all the skill set to be an impct player at the major league level. 46 PAs in Delmarva is not going to have me concerned.
    • Best evidence from a season like this may be the Orioles ability to get the most out of their talent. Not the actually talent they are putting on the field now.  
    • If another team is going to be turned off from Means based on a bad 2020 ERA that's driven by one poor inning, then we might actually be able to sucker them into trading for one of our JAGs
