I can't believe I'm seeing your name...that's so awesome!!!!
Thanks you guys!!
The results were good...not as good as we had hoped, but not bad either.
The tumors on my left side have shrunk "considerably" and on my right side "they're smaller" which is sure as hell better than "there's nothing we can do and you're dying!"
They did however find a couple masses on my lungs. Which is a bit shocking to say the least. My Dr. said not to be alarmed by this mostly due to I'm at MD Anderson and *anything* that shows up, the radiologist will ALWAYS lean towards "possibly cancer" because it's a cancer hospital...lol! Makes sense He also said that since Houston is a polluted city it could just be something that I happened to breath in prior to the testing. Either way, we're not really going to worry about that right now.
I go to my new chemo doctor this coming Friday for my treatment plan. I'm going to lose every bit of hair I have left on my body. Eyelashes and eyebrows included I'm going to be ugly...I just know it.
This feels like a lifetime of pills and doctors.
So, overall, not bad news at all...just keep praying it will go away, I wish it weren't such a stubborn fucking cancer!
I really appreciate everyone's support...this has been incredibly hard for MH and myself to go through. We keep saying "this isn't the end to our story...we have so much more to do"
So we keep pushing through...looking for hope and hanging on to all the positive things in our lives.
