The Scan showed progression in my liver and tumor in my left breast. Chemo didn’t work. Oncologist said if it were up to her she wouldn’t even bother with chemo in a nutshell). We said yes, obvie, but she doesn’t even think it will help. Have to go inpatient at home as soon as we land; beginning signs of liver failure (high calcium levels). That’s cool. Will have 2 rounds of some fucking awful chemo inpatient and be treated for my high calcium levels from my shotty liver. Will have another scan after 2 rounds. If it shows I’m well enough for transplant, they are still allowing it, however, seems like only my stem cell doctor remains somewhat optimistic. Not really sure what’s going to happen anymore. Guess we have to prepare for the worst at this point. Probably the worst day of my life to date.
I’m guessing I will be at Seidman for about a week.
BUT! Here is the good news: if the chemo works, and the transplant is successful, there is a 60% chance of a cure. So not throwing in the towel just yet! Step one-need to pray my liver stays strong and the chemo works. Step 2-pray for successful transplant. Step 3-fuck this cancer up.
….step 4: have a kicked cancer’s ass party, where I become wildly intoxicated.
…..step 5: tell my grandkids about this journey one day.
In other amazing news, we found a chick-fil-a here at md Anderson which was like the best news we’ve had all day!! Who doesn’t love chick-Fil-a?! Fools. That’s who.
Looks like this will be another long year. But we are ready for this battle.
Please keep the prayers coming. Really need some strength right now 🙂
