Mary Ann is in the hospital. She had her PET scan last week, and did not get good results. Apparently the Doxil did not work for her. Her CA 125 also raised by 50 per cent. The PET scan also showed fluid in both her lungs and around her heart. They drained the fluid off one lung one day, and then off the other lung the next day. Tomorrow they are going to do a "pericardial window". She will then go to ICU. She is not sure how long she will need to be in ICU.
Mary Ann is worried about the progression of the disease. She thinks it is still contained in the lymph nodes around the lungs and heart. She is wondering what the next treatment will be.
Mary Ann is very weak and cannot even get out of bed. Please say some extra prayers for her recovery. She says she is a firm believer in the power of prayer. I also believe that.
