Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Hospital Update

Sorry this update didn't happen until now. Did not have Cari's password and could not get onto her site till now. Cari's BBBD procedure (Blood Brain Barrier Disruption) went well. She actually was admitted on Tuesday to place the port back for chemo administration along with pre op tests at the University of Minnesota. Wed and Thursday she had the procedure performed. As a matter of fact the Doctor just came in and the procedure went well. They were pleased with the results of the disruption, meaning the chemo got into the places they wanted it to. For more information about this procedure you can visit the website that talks about this procedure. She is sleeping a lot due to the medications and the anesthesia she underwent. But that sleep is well deserved since she was having problems sleeping over the last few weeks. If all goes well tomorrow, she will be going home. She is already scheduled for next month's procedure, as this will be a monthly therapy in the hospital. We just pray that the results will be successful. In a few weeks she will have an MRI and we will know better.

Phillippians 4: 7
And God's peace (shall be yours, that "tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace) which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
