KatieB Posted March 7, 2009 Share Posted March 7, 2009 Amie's mom, Suki, started declining mentally over the past two weeks and on Thursday started having bowel and bladder incompetance. Yesterday the docs at MSK got together and came in and told her there was nothing more they can do for her. All of her symptoms are due to advancing leptomeningeal mets that don't show on an MRI and haven't responded to RT or Tarceva. Because of the incontinence, Suki is not a candidate for home hospice but they're working to get her into Calvary, a palliative care hospital in the Bronx that they've heard universally wonderful things about. She should be transferred Mon or Tues. She will post an update when she can. Please keep Suki and Amie in your prayers. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
