Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma

The doctor called.

Dave (my FIL) has been diagnosed with Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, likely stage IIIB. We will have more information after he has a PET scan (Monday) and bone marrow biopsy (Tuesday)done. He has an appointment on 9/14 where I'm assuming treatment options will be discussed.

Until then, Dave has told us "Meanwhile me buckoos – chin up , head down and full steam ahead".

I will do my best to comply.

At least he has a great attitude, in my opinion that makes all the difference in the world!!! (and if you have a Famous Daves around you, he should go get a free meal on Sunday for being a "Dave"!!!)

I agree with Sarah. I just had Famous Daves today and was reminded of how great they are...kind of like your Dave.
I'm sorry this is happening. Your in-laws are great people...heck look at the great son and grandson they sired.

Well. That effing blows. You know that age old question, "why do bad things happen to good people?" Did anyone find out the answer to that? Because I for one, would like to know. So so sorry. Hang in there, man.
