I am sorry that It has taken mee so long to let everyone know what is going on with me. Due to not feeling well this will be a rather short update. I was not able to make it to Minnasota because I became very ill on the flight so on our layover in Salt Lake my husband talked to my doctor who arranged for me to go to the Mayo in Scotsdale. I was taken to the hospital in Salt Lake and flown to pheonix. After many tests and removal of the tumors in my stomach and kidneys and Bx of the tumors in my breast they determined that I have metastatic breast cancer that has now involved other organs and lymph nodes. They started an aggressive course of chemotherapy and after two weeks of that and being so sick I have chosen to stop that. I do not have Paraneoplastic Neurological Disease and did not find out much more about
that except that is not the problem. I have a great team of doctors and they do think that MS is still a possibility but hard to say with the tumors in my brain. I refused to have the brain tumors removed because of the fearof being awake while they are doing that.
My wonderful husband has gotton time off of work and has rented an apartment in Pheonix and my doctors said it would be ok for me to come back here for a week to make arrangements for care of our house and to pick up my kids. My husband and kids are going to move to Pheonix until this is over so I can be with my kids but also get good medical care. They said that I could stay in the apartment if I am doing okay and I would still be close to the hospital. I have missed them so much and it was so nice to hold them. I got here on Monday but Have been pretty weak to be on the computer much and have been trying to spend alot of time with my kids. The older ones know and they are not doing well but I pray they will be okay. I will be leaving on Tuesday to go back and then see what happens from there. The doctors will discuss other treatment options and are really encouraging me to restart the chemo so I ahve been praying about that. My enrgy is fading fast so I should go lay down but thought I shopuld let you all know what I have found out.
