Several years back, my mother-in-law discovered she had breast cancer. She was able to have the mass removed, had radiation and got on with her life. She would go back for her regular checkups and they would clear her for another year.
Until this year... Mr. Cancer decided to show it's ugly face once again. This time in the other breast. OK. The mass was removed. No problem. She will just have another round of radiation. It worked last time just fine.
WRONG. Because this time there were cancer cells found in the lymph nodes. UGH! They decide she will have to have chemo. OK. We will deal with it...
WRONG. A test was sent off that said it wasn't bad enough to have to undergo the stress of chemo and that radiation should do the trick... Praise the Lord!
WAIT. She just had another scan and test run. They found a spot on her liver. It is a small spot and they have no idea, YET, what the spot is... she goes tomorrow for more tests.
I feel like we are on a roller coaster ride. Up and down, in and out, highs and lows... Radiation, radiation and chemo, radiation, undecided... Please keep this precious woman in your prayers. I am so proud of her, for she has remained upbeat, but unfortunately with every turn and swerve and different things doctors say, well it is hard not to worry and fear the unknown.
Tomorrow she goes for more testing to see what the spot on the liver is. It could be ANYTHING. We are keeping the faith and staying positive.
Prayers and blessings...
