This whole experience is truly a mess. Since day 1 when Mom was diagnosed, it's nothing but bad news piled on top of bad news. A few months ago we thought we received even more bad news when Mom's numbers were going up again. If the tests were accurate then this would mean that she'd have cancer for a fourth time which would likely mean more chemo.
Thankfully, we've gotten what some might consider "good news". Mom had a CAT Scan recently that showed up negative. Dr. Canavan said that there was no visible signs of anything growing or developing on or near any major organs. This means a few things. First it means that if her original CA125 test was accurate, whatever cancer is growing is so small and insignificant that the Doc really sees no need to worry right away. Secondly it means that she can stay off Chemo, at least for another couple of weeks which is a VERY good thing. Her body will continue to recover and get stronger with each day. In short, among all this bad news, her recent CAT Scan was definitely good news...a silver lining in the midst of chaos.
Mom continues to battle like the "bad ass" she is and will be ready to give cancer another beat down if necessary. We continue to be proud of her as I am sure you all are. Make sure you read the posts down below about our two major fundraising events... the Poker Tournament, and the Teal Night for Life both on April 5th. She would greatly appreciate you coming out if you are free that day. Hope to see you there!!
