I have been debating writing about this, but I know that a lot of people that we don't talk to all of the time read this so I thought it would be a good idea to get the news out on here. Unfortunately yesterday we received some expected, yet difficult news. My mom had a chest x-ray and some blood work done on Monday to check for cancer. On Tuesday she received a phone call from her doctor's office asking her to go in for the results on Wednesday. We knew then that it was not good news. My brother Brian went with her yesterday morning and they were told that the cancer was back in both lungs now and possibly in her bloodstream. He also said that the could not perform surgery or radiation anymore. She has an appointment next Thursday with the oncologist. Her doctor is hoping that they will at least be able to do some chemotherapy. I will try to keep updating our site for those that would like more information.
Please keep my mom and family in your thoughts and prayers. We knew that this day would come. When she was first diagnosed in 2005 we were told that chemotherapy and radiation treatments would give her about 5 more years at the most, but it is still very difficult to hear this news again.
