I know many of you are thinking, “FINALLY! I’m over the food and baby posts…what about Miss Judy?”
Well never fear, your Miss Judy post is here!
All was well with Miss Judy for awhile, which was why there was no update. A couple of months ago however, after a routine CT scan, we found out that Mom’s cancer had come back. There was a spot in her lymph nodes and a small spot in her lung that showed some growth in the CT scan. The Doctor’s ordered a PET Scan to look a little closer, and those results showed that the only actual growth was in the lymph nodes. While ANY growth is definitely NOT what we want, growth in the lymph nodes is the most treatable.
Mom was then scheduled for chemo. She took chemo 3 times a week, every other week, for 6 weeks. CT scans in the middle of her chemo indicated that the chemo was working. Last week she finished her last rounds of chemo. She has another CT scan coming up next week, and we’re hoping for some more good news!
Mom really wanted to wait until she knew what was going before she made her update public, which is understandable. I can personally say she did great with the chemo. Unfortunately, her hair fell out again. But if any of you had seen her hair before she started chemo…it was crazy! A curly grey mess – Albert Einstein style. I told her it might be kind of a good thing to start over again 😉
Her spirits are amazing though and her attitude is awesome. It’s a big change since the last time we went through this. Mom’s just ready to do whatever it takes to kick this cancer’s ass, and I’m so proud of her for that.
Please continue to pray and send positive thoughts our way! I will update you all on the CT scan results in the coming week or so.
