My mother, dearest of all people to me, was diagnosed Stage 3 UPSC endometrial cancer in July 2008. Yesterday she got the results of Monday's CT scan. The "original" recurrence mass on her bladder, debulked 1/22/10, has doubled in size even through 4 courses of Ixempra. There are 2-3 new tumors.
There is one last drug to try, but the tumor assay did not have a favorable response to anything. The doctor was honest in that she didn't think it will buy any more time at this point. The masses are interfering with bladder/kidney and lymph function.
She was told six months. It is time now to make big decisions and plan out the remainder of the year with my little family of three. I am an only child and my Papa is so scared, too.
I don't know what I will do without my Mama in my life. I never thought I would have to say goodbye at 33. I wanted twenty, thirty more years.
I can't make sense of this.
