The news was better than expected. They did not find cancer cells in the spinal fluid that could be detected! There is still cancer of the spine surrounding the nerve roots, but showing no spread to fluid or brain at this point! A few other spots have been identified and are being treated next week with radiation followed by more chemotherapy. Treatment plans will be established with the oncologist around the middle of July; but radiation will happen very soon to help alleviate some of the pain she's experiencing. You wouldn't know she's in this situation or even in pain because Mom's always great at staying busy and keeping her positive outlook as best as she can!
Since Mom's initial diagnosis she's been celebrating years alive. If "Age is just a Number" her "Stage of Cancer" is also "Just a Number" and she's breaking records every day! We're so proud of her faith, hope, strength and endurance! Her fight has truly been the biggest compliment to her loved ones and extremely encouraging for many people.
Stay strong and keep hanging on!
Just keep swimming!
It ain't over!
Momma is ONE TOUGH CHICK!
So stay tuned for more updates and thank you for all of your support through this journey!
Love & Hugs, Always!
