100 lb. Club - A very off topic update on my Mama :)

02-15-2009, 02:05 PM
Pheeewww...this has been a long time coming! Our entire group of family and friends are ecstatic right now!

Mom had her CT last week, and got her results a few days ago. I'll write a little here...
After all the technical jargon, we have...

IMPRESSION: Almost complete resolution of the pulmonary lesions in left hilar mass is seen since the previous exam of march 8th '08. No new mass lesion is identified. No destructive bone lesion is seen. Spiculated mass previously seen in upper left lobe is not identified. Focal scarring is also seen at the site of the posterior right mid lung lesion. No residual mass is seen in that area either.

Report also states that liver, kidneys, adrenals, lymph nodes are clear.

So basically, some things that were there, are gone entirely, and if it's not gone entirely, it's only scar tissue...can you get better news than that??
I suppose it's not the elusive NED (no evidence of disease), but not all pathologists use that term, right?
I'm stunned, and in awe, and all welled up inside!

Next scan in August

Thank you to anyone who has prayed for us, and thanks to God for giving me more time with my Mama!!!
I'm just overwhelmed with this reprieve...no matter how short lived it may be!

Maybe this will be helpful to my own getting started again! :dunno:

OK...this is a GREAT week!
First the amazing news about my Mom...and now.....

My best friend is pregnant, it was a surprise, but they were very happy.
On Sunday she started having a bit of spotting...VERY SCARY! Monday it got much less, and today she went to have an ultrasound to see if things were OK.


Things are OK, more than OK......she's having TWINS!!!!

I have to admit, I've been absolutely aching for one more baby for about 7 years...desperately. But hubby doesn't want any more. It's hard.
When I found out about these twins, I was, and am THRILLED. But part of me is sad for myself...I went to my room and cried for about half an hour.
I'm very envious, my uterus is aching...but what can I do, right?

Anyway, I'll have two new babies to snuggle, and I can be quite involved....I'm so excited for her :) :bb::preg:

Thank you for your love and support!
