CT Scan Results (4mo Post-Chemo)

It's been a while since we've had much action on the blog since Mom's last CT Scan 4 months ago. It's been about 4 months since her last chemo treatment. Since then she's been recovering so wonderfully as you've read. Mom's been gaining back healthy weight, getting used to her eating/snacking routine and is able to do more with the family, friends and also in the community. Way to go Mom!!! {Snaps for Mommy!}

We're not going to let this most recent CT Scan get us down, but we'll go ahead and let you know what was found. It appears that 2 large masses have decided to become friends with Mom's ovaries. They weren't even suspect at her last scan but have now grown from dots into the size of plums. {I left my notes at work that Mom and I discussed so I'm going freestyle and hope I'm not saying to much} Nonetheless, it is nothing to dismiss as we are taking this very seriously and Mom has an appointment scheduled with an oncologist/ovarian cancer specialist on Monday April 4th. We'll keep you posted as always.

The good new is {#1} we found this early {#2} I honestly can't imagine how any "cancer" could have survived these past treatments only 4 months ago and especially after the surgery/removal {#3} this could easily be an ovarian cyst and {#4} when you've been through what Mom has {fighting off stomach cancer and trying to survive life without a stomach while going through chemo treatments etc.} .... there's nothing we can't face together and with God's help!

Please continue to keep Kerry, our Mother and best friend in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you for all of the love, support, joy and comfort you bring us.

Love Always,
Kerry's Kids

  1. Dear Kerry and Family,

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you. The fact that you've gained weight is a good sign. The masses may well be cysts, or another benign condition. Given your age, the statistics are on your side. Let us know if there is anything we can do. May God watch over you and protect you. Stay strong.


    W., D. and B.
