Oct 18th Update

Friday, October 18, 2013

I probably should wait to blog about what is going on with me, but I will give a quick update here today.
My abdominal scan confirmed that I have two masses around my left ovary. What they thought was a fibroid is now suspect. I have an appointment with the GYN on Monday to discuss a biopsy. Biopsies of this sort require major surgery. I may have Ovarian Cancer. To compound issues, my brain scan shows that my tumor is growing and that we need to discuss surgery for that also. They will not want to do the biopsy while I have the brain tumor. Brain surgery is a very big deal and I would hospitalized for a long time. I would not be able to remember things like how to take care of myself, how to handle money, how to talk and eat.
I am not sure what is going to happen at this point. I will update my blog again when I have more info. I am still not able to eat, so I am not really doing SP anymore. I am really overwhelmed and I need time to process. Thanks for understanding!

    I'm so sorry to hear this! My son at 14 yrs old had 4 brain surgeries within 4 months they had to put a shunt in his head to reroute the fluid so the tumor doesn't grow!! He has an inoperable brain tumor! He has no short term memory. He works, but the job is repetitive so he can remember what to do ! It takes awhile for the short term memory to become long term! He takes anti seizure medication and has MRI's every 6 months. My son is now 32yrs old. Dr.s told us the same he may not be able to walk, talk, feed himself and my son is fine. They also gave him 5 years to live and he has out done that by 13 years! I wish you all the very best. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers! Never give up my son is living proof you can overcome the most serious of things! God Bless You!
