good news/bad news (by Judy)

I had an appointment with my oncologist on Fri. The bad news: they think the spots on my lung are cancer, and there are a few spots on my bones so she’s ordering a bone scan. Also, the tumors that were already in my liver are bigger and there are more there.

The good news: she was very positive about treatment options and said, once again, that she has “an arsenal” of treatments for me. She’s very hopeful which doesn’t take away all my emotional pain right now, but it does help.

I’m getting a second opinion and talked that over with her. She’s fine with that, and her secretary/receptionist already set that up for July 14.

I won’t lie; this is hard, very hard. I’m coping, but things are just difficult right now and I’m downright scared.

Thanks for all of your support and prayers. I appreciate it so much.

    Thinking of you Judy. It’s ridiculously hard and too much for one person to handle – from reading all of your posts, I know you have an amazing support system. I, too, am behind you. x
