Praise God it is not cancer........
The tumour she has is a desmoid tumour and with any luck we will be able to get it all removed by surgery. This tumour has a habit of growing back though if not every cell is removed. If the results come back that they didn't get it all then they will treat her with chemo once every three weeks for a period of 6 months. The oncologist said that she should not lose her hair although it may thin a little. Emma has very thin hair to start with so hopefully we won't have to travel that road.
I am praying with all my might that the surgeon will be able to remove every single cell of this horrible tumour. Apparently it has a mass of a tennis ball. No wonder Emma is in pain and so unable to eat properly.
We have an appointment with the surgeon and oncologist tomorrow at 11.30am and are hoping that they will get her in early next week for the surgery. The sooner this thing is gone the sooner she can get back to her normal life and us too.
Anyway I will post again tomorrow night after we get all the details from the specialists.
Thank you once again for your prayers, gifts, thoughts and love. I have been able to stay so strong knowing that there are people out there rooting for us.
