Thanks for all of the help since we bought our toyhauler. It's been a hectic last year-and-a-half. The hauler only got taken on one trip last year and sat until mid-June this year. My husband was diagnosed with lung cancer last year in August. He underwent chemo and radiation last fall and was deemed in remission in November, 2012. He tried to return to work in January but went back off work the end of February. More chemo from April until first of June. When they did ct scans in July, the doctors realized that they looked the same as the one in February. He had more tests in October and the tests look the same. The doctors have decided that the cancer is back in remission. He is going back to work this week, so thanks for the good thoughts and prayers.

Back to toy haulers. We worked as camper hosts this summer starting in mid-June and the position made a big difference in Jeff's outlook. The hauler sat on a site all summer and we got to go camping every weekend and even some weekdays. We are hoping to go 4-wheeling next spring with the kids and then do the camper host thing again.

Thanks to your help, the generator is working. The satelite was changed over to cable and later reversed. The gas pump works. The water pump has been replaced. This site is a gold mine for information so THANK YOU!!!

Continued prayers for a healthy life going forward most importantly.

Secondly, you are so right that this entire forum is awesome. Saved so much time/money and actually had fun with all the projects I have been able to get done with the great people on this forum.

I have bought and sold a toy hauler and a motor home and now I am in a 37' toy hauler again. Had to even get a non commercial class A to pull it, but without this forum it would not be possible.

Now the wife wants to go back to a motor home, go figure.

Without this forum I wouldn't have known you'd need the non-com class A.

Thank you for all the well-wishes. Jeff is beginning the 8 week return to full-time work. We live in Ohio, so don't need a Class A. He's also starting to teach our 16 year old how to drive the medium duty truck. All I can say is that I am glad, she buried the rear tires in the driveway instead of running it through the garage door. She didn't know it was in reverse when she took her foot off the clutch the first time she got behind the wheel and had never drove a "stick shift" before. Nothing like driving the automatic Dodge.

Tell your doctor to order a PET Scan next time. (Maybe they already did?)

The insurance kept denying a pet scan "said it wasn't medically necessary" until July of this year when the new pulmologist insisted that he needed it to do a biopsy. He didn't know which spot to check. They found 2 hot spots and did a biopsy on the new one. Came back "no cancer found". The other was in the lymph node where cancer was last year and has a lot of scar tissue. It hasn't changed since October, 2012 other than to shrink some more.

As a result of the the insurance denials, the oncologist gave Jeff treatments as though he had cancer even if there wasn't proof. Cancer was found by biopsy in the lymph node between the lungs in August, 2012. Jeff went through chemo and 30 rounds of chest radiation between August and October, 2012 when the ct scans showed black spots instead of white spots. In March, 2013, a ct scan showed white dots throughout the lungs. It is now thought that it was an infection or scar tissue as the dots have either disappeared, shrunk, or remained the same. But when the insurance again denied a pet scan, the oncologist gave Jeff three rounds of a different chemo instead of waiting to see if the spots spread. He then did more ct scans that looked the same as the March ones. It was at that point that the oncologist called in a pulmologist to do a biopsy.
