Andrea B. Posted July 9, 2003 Share Posted July 9, 2003 Hi All, I haven't posted in a while. I have felt like denial is serving me well lately. I feel like I want to bury my head in the sand and pretend everything is okay. We have gotten good news lately, but can't help but feeling like I am just waiting for the other shoe to drop. Normally, I am pretty positive and strong...but don't feel like that lately. I am very thankful for the good news we have received...the cancer in my mom's lymph nodes has continued to shrink. The cancer in her lung is contained in a "cavity"...the doctor says the cavity itself has not shrunk since the last CT scan, but he said it doesn't mean the cancer itself isn't shrinking. Has anyone heard of this? He said it is good news, because it hasn't grown and there is no cancer present elsewhere, yeah!!!!! She has developed a cough, but her doctor said this could also be from fluid building up in the cavity where the cancer had been present. Also, my dad's CT scan from the liver cancer came back clean. There is no additional cancer present (after the surgery) and it appears the blood supply has been completely cut off to the original tumor. Overall, the news is terrific. I think I am emotionally tired from the roller coaster ride I call cancer and from the waiting on test results. I keep everyone in my prayers. I wish I had a magical pill to wipe away everyone's suffering. You are all such wonderful people. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
