hello all. as you may have read i was supposed to get a left thoractomy on feb 25 at mayo. i got a ct done on the 24th and have a total of ten on the left now and one on the right. my surgeon sd he does not feel that surg is an option for me any more. all the tumors are small but he sd we must pay attention to what your body is telling us. of course the vision of my kids flashed b4 my eyes and i shed some tears for the first time. as you can imagine the wind got knocked out of both me and my husband, but at the same time i still am going to fight this. i also talked to my onc at mayo and she sd that there were still some options for me although limited at this point. i have been on oxcili, avastin, and was on erbitux b4 all this took place. i will meet with my onc here to set a plan of attack. i hope that all will work out well and maybe if things stay stable who knows maybe i will be a canidate for surgery again. i right this with a heavy but hopeful heart, that all will work out in the end. my faith is very strong and like a told a friend i am just thankful to wake up another day and still be a mother a friend, and sister and hopefully a voice for those who struggle to keep up the fight. hope all of you are doing well. Gods richest blessings to all of you as i will keep you informed. Peace to you all.
