Hiccups Before Staging Cancer

I barely slept the night before last waiting for the results of mom's PET Scan & Brain MRI. We have been waiting to have it done cause the hospital will not do it when your a patient. We've been getting pushed back into the hospital and in recent discovery mom spleen is dying, her blood flow was blocked in her leg & she got a stent. She was losing blood with a 4.9 Hemoglobin, they discovered stomach ulcers. "Maybe that where her blood had been going." She's been running extremely high fever and having fever blisters on her mouth which should have give indication. I guess her body was over fighting with a white cell count over 71,000.

Yesterday was a silver lining since we heard she had lung cancer. It is there in that one spot upper part of the lung and has not spread, it's the size of a large baseball. The Chemo/Radiation doctor says get it out. So next week we will talking to the surgeon and hopefully removing that part of her lung. So staging the cancer he would say it would be a stage 1 with the size of it and over all he was very positive.

I just want to say thank for each prayer, they mean so much and please continue. We still have a long road to go but, we have Faith and Will. Just wanted to share these beautiful flowers left on her pillow at the hospital Easter Sunday from strangers delivering roses, while she was having a procedure done.

I am so sorry your mom is going through this. Cancer is so evil. But praise God you now have a game plan in removing it. I'll be keeping you and your mom in prayer in the coming weeks.
