Good Evening and Good Night….
PS: I just in from my cousin regarding my Aunt, and her Mom… Please Pray for all of the family.
Good morning! I want to start by saying since my computer crashed I don’t have Marlo’s email address, so if one of you could pass this news on I would really appreciate it, and maybe send me her address, or if she emails me I can save it, thanks!
I don’t know if any of you have talked with Mom yet, but I will tell you what is going. As you may or may not know, mom had to go to Eugene for her scans then back this week for the results….They were not good, the cancer is back and a bit worse than the first time. It is in her same lung, but also in the lung lining, this is new as opposed to before, last time it was in one of her lymphs, but this time they are clear.
It was devastating news to say the least, my heart is absolutely broken, I did NOT see this coming as she seemed like she was doing so well, she looks good, happy to have gotten her hair back…just unbelievable!
They say that they cannot cure her but they are going to try to control it, she will have to have chemotherapy every 3 weeks for the rest of her life, beginning Sept. 5th. I’m assuming that after she has a couple of treatments they’ll take some pictures and see how it’s working, we weren’t given those details yet, but that’s what I would think….They say it will be hard hard chemo…
If she does nothing and takes no treatments at all, they say she would only have 4-5 weeks left, her lung would completely fill up and collapse and well, you know the rest… I find this unbelievable, I look at my Mom and would never think in a million years she could be gone in just a month! She just seems to healthy to me! Now that’s without any treatments, she will be receiving treatments, so now we start praying…HARD..wishing, whatever your pleasure!
I’m sorry I didn’t call with the news, we were just so overwhelmed, by the time we got home from the doctors, it was about 6 PM, she was exhausted and yesterday I left them alone to process it all and talk….I didn’t know for sure if she had called or if any of you had called her, I should have just emailed you right away yesterday morning..I will keep all of you posted everytime, so if I could get Marlo’s email it will make it much easier, I can just send one update to everyone each time she has her treatment.
Again, I’m sorry I didn’t let you all know yesterday, I can barely keep my composure, I can’ t even begin to tell you how I feel, words can’t describe!
Hug your family and hold them close
