...I told the boys tonight, so I feel better about posting this now-
I would have to say that the scan results were like a kick in the diaphram. I lost my breath a little, okay a lot. The scans showed that I have several new bone lesions (spine, ribs, scapula, humerous, skull...) and now have not the 10, but now approx. 20 liver lesions. BAD NEWS! The doc suggested a MUGA scan to test my heart functioning before starting a new chemo. He has one in mind, but is also going to look into clinical trials. I also told him about the headache that never goes away and the left hand tremor, thinking a brain mri might be good too, so I had that done on tuesday. The results came on wednesday, and I have several brain lesions scattered throughout...the worst news to-date, and I have to admit that as soon as I got off the phone with the doctor I called Dan who had to keep me from hyperventilating. My parents both came to stay with me that evening...we did dinner and a movie, and mom spent the night. I will meet with the radiation oncologist tomorrow morning and we will hopefully get started ASAP on WBR (whole brain radiation). After that is finished, then we can begin chemo ...again.
The boys took the news like troopers. There were some tears shead, of course, but I stayed strong and hopefully that gives them hope that we can fight this longer. I told them that I am tough and will do everything I can to win this battle.
Thankful for?!?! I am thankful for all the prayers that are going up by so many people. I am thankful for the people in our lives that will help the kids, Dan, my sister and parents, and I through this difficult time. I am thankful for Gods love, and I will be thankful for that miracle when he sendings it. =) PLEASE HUG YOUR FAMILY!!! Hope and Love!
