MRI Results

Results from MRI:

Tumour has grown back to almost 2/3 the original size in just 6 weeks.  Surgery is not really an option at this point as it will probably only grow back again just as quick.  We are off to see the oncologist on the 5th and she will probably get a port put in and then they will start chemo on the 6th.  The first course is going to be for 3 months and then they will up the dose for the next 3 and so on for 12 months.  If that doesn't work (it will anyway) then they will do radiation therapy.  She has a long road ahead of her but she is tough and will get through it. 

I have started doing the photo a day so here are my photos;

Day 1: 
Decided to hit the sales and see what I could pick up....  Managed to get everyone else something but could not find anything for me

Day 2: 
My crazy girl and her equally crazy little cousin Cooper

Day 3:
Boat full of goofballs - enjoying a late night dip during her sleepover.

Well I am in for a late night I believe as Emma is having a sleep over for her birthday tomorrow.  The girls are so full of sweets and soda that I don't think they will be asleep at all.  I let them go for a big swim a little while ago hoping that it would tire them  out - ha how wrong was I.......

I cannot wait for Emma to wake up tomorrow morning. Stuart and I have bought her a little Pandora bracelet. Her girlfriend gave her a little present charm and I have got her a little black and white cow.  Jacob wanted to get her a little crucifix so he did.  Mishae gave her a beautiful little heart dangly one.  She knows that she is getting the Pandora but nothing about the charms we have for her.  I have told her that I will let her buy a small charm after every chemo session.  She is to have the chemo once every three weeks.

Anyway there is quite at the moment so I am going to go and make a nice cup of tea and relax while I have the chance.  I am supposed to be taking them out to Intencity tomorrow and then to the coffee shop for kiddy chinos.  If they don't let me sleep though they won't be going....

Hope this finds you all well
