Last week, instead of her regular chemo, we got bad news from debs earlier scan the previous week.
They saw a new growth from the shrunken tumor in her armpit that was one of the sites they had seemed to tame with treatments, as well as something on her liver.
After seeing our reaction, Dr.Oregan, debs oncologist, was surprisingly reassuring, jumping up and saying to not be too alarmed, and there were many things they could possibly do, and they still considered this manageable.
Tomorrow Deb is undergoing yet another biopsy, this time under her right armpit, followed later in the day by a visit with her docs.
As always, my precious angel has been amazing, as with everything that has been thrown at her in life,(and that has been far more than anyone should ever have to deal with),she has taken she has taken this week of waiting in stride, taken the attitude of, "O.K. what do we do to beat this", with just a few understandable moments of anger,tears and questioning why.
The last couple days has been pretty tough, and its almost a relief to be getting up at 5 a.m. to be at Emory in Atlanta by 10, easier to take action than to sit and dread.
I know there are many wonderful folks here, many of whom know our battle, and once again, im asking for prayers, good thoughts, anything you choose to do, i believe we can make a difference with these things, and you have done a great deal before.
I dont want people to feel they have to post a response here or anything, we know you care and its so greatly appreciated, just your good karma is enough.
Not sure when, but i will of course let everyone know what we find out.
