Update on Mom

First of all, Dad (76) is doing fine, just for those who want to know. His color is real good. Though he is obviously in pain with his back, he isn't letting it keep him from doing what he wants to.

Mom had a CT scan and Pt scan last week. We got the results yesterday.

The CT scan said there are no tumors anywhere, which means no active cancer.

The PT scan evidently glows when there are cancer cells. There were three, maybe four glowing spots;
  • liver
  • hip
  • back (but not where she has had pain for the last 3 weeks)
  • and maybe lung (too faint to tell if it was a cancer glow or a bit of fluid on the lungs)
This means she does not have cancer, but it is trying to come back.

We will be trying a chemo pill to see if she can tolerate it and if it will stop the cancer. If it doesn't work she will go back to weekly infusions (IV's).

Please keep us in your prayers.

Thank you so much for commenting! I love to talk to my readers.

I do ask that there be no anonymous commenters, though. If I am brave enough to put my name on this blog, you should be too:-)

Please keep it civil. Remember we are all human and make mistakes, and that since we can't see each other's faces or hear each other's tone of voice, it is very hard to get the emotion in what we are saying each other. Use lots of emoticons! :-) And show grace and love to each other.
