My daughter got a run down of her diagnosis today. She did indeed have a very rare adult Neurblastoma. It is usually seen in children and most of the time it is found on the spine, neck, or stomach. It was active and the surgeon will go back in and take more tissue and do scrapings of her skull. Then she will have to have it checked out every three months. This particular form of blastoma is a very aggressive cancer. She will also have to look her body over every week for new spots. It matastasses easily and can take over very quickly. But on the bright side she got it checked out and taken out. Now that we know what we are dealing with she can be very aggressive in making sure she catches any other ones quickly.
Needless to say I am hurting all over from the stress. I haven't slept since Friday with the exception of a few drowsy minutes in my chair. I bet I crash tonight. Thank you all for your support. This has been the scariest thing I have ever gone through.
Can I just say how wonderful it is now that the ads are huge, take up 3/4 of the screen and are plastered in the middle of the page disrupting the flow of posts. It fulfills my Christms wish. Yes, that was sarcasm.
Good morning.I have had the magical fibro sleep called "can't sleep can't wake up". My eyeballs are sandpaper. My brain is oatmeal. Unflavored oatmeal.But to each of you... I offer support. A burden shared is a burden lessened. We're here. Each of us is a strand ina spiderweb. One strand can take a lot, but the web altogether? Oh, that can take so much more than just the individual threads all...
