My Trip to my Doctors

Hey there I wanted to give an up-date on the latest. I went to my Uncolygist today. She said from the previous scans I had this past Friday that the cancer has not spread which is great news. She spoke to a couple of doctors who deal with my type of cancer in Boston and at Duke and they are both really interested in hearing more about my case. I will be going to Duke to meet with a Doctor who specializes in Sarcomas, to get his in put all of my doctors are working together to make the best decision, As of right now I will be having surgery I just don't know when yet. They are considering giving me Radiation before my surgery to make sure they get any cells that could still be there. They may want to do Chemo as well which I am not happy about neither is my mother since she and Sam are trying to build up my immune system up so that I can fight, as of right now I feel good I'm eating and I'm sleeping I have a very positive attitude, I thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. I'm very scared but I have my family my loving boyfriend Jason and all my friends in this with me and I am very blessed. I will continue to keep everyone updated... thank you and I love you all

The Unexpected Surprise of May 2010

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to keep everyone up to date because I know my brother posted something on Facebook about me being in the hospital. I was feeling really sick last week and was having a hard time breathing so I went to the doctor. They did an x-ray and found that I had a tumor, surrounded by fluid pressing against one of my lungs, causing it to collapse. When I went to the hospital to figure out how to handle the situation, they did a biopsy on my tumor. While waiting for the results, I had to have more than 2 liters of fluid pumped out of me so that I could regain full use of my collapsed lung. When the biopsy results returned, the doctors had determined that that tumor contains a type of cancer called spindle cell sarcoma. Right now we are trying to figure out the best, and most intelligent way to attack this but nothing has been determined yet. I was released from the hospital today and I am at home and just trying to get settled back in and relax. When I have more information to share, I will update you all. Please keep me in your prayers.
