First off, thank you to Holly for posting for me when I couldn't. Who would have thought a blog could have brought me one of my best friends.
Trina had her ultrasound today and the good news is that there isn't any big tumor in her stomach or anything else major like that. The lymph nodes next to her liver are enlarged but as of right now, we don't know anything else. A biopsy is probably going to be done tomorrow. We thank God for her amazing team of doctors that she has. Her OB and surgeon (the same surgeon that she had for her breast cancer in 1992) have been in pretty much constant contact with her and they both gave her their cell numbers so she can get in touch with them at any time.
Although we still don't know exactly what type of cancer that it is, her surgeon has already selected an oncologist (her OB told her today, she doesn't "officially" know this) and he is the best in the area.
So. That is all to report. We probably won't have any more info until Friday.
I'd like to thank everyone who has posted comments. Sissy and I, as fate would have it, had our psychiatric appointments already scheduled for today so it was good to be together and to talk to our psychiatrist about everything. He wants to see sissy in a month and when the receptionist told Trina that he wasn't available until mid June, I had to play the cancer card. I butted my head in and told the receptionist, "she has cancer, Dr. H wants to see her in four weeks." Needless to say, sissy is now at the top of the cancellation list :) Anyway, on our way home, I told sissy about the number of comments that were on my blog. She said she had only seen 33 (she hadn't checked in a few hours) and she has read through each and every one of them. So thank you!
Sissy is amazingly strong. Her outlook is, well, it couldn't be any better. We all get strength from HER. She is constantly worried about us, which is not how it should be. We will ALL get through it together, even if we have to drag her though the finish line. Chemo will suck. She's really dreading that as she keeps remembering how it was. But then again, that was 16 1/2 years ago, so I'm sure some things have changed, hopefully for the better.
Anyway, please keep praying. That is all we ask for. Healing prayers and good thoughts.
