Topic: Not the best update

Some of y'all may of seen on Facebook, but I had 2 new spots show up on my liver on Pet. All the old stuff still looks dead. Dr. Javle is putting me on GTX and I will be having a biopsy soon to make sure I'm getting the best chemo.
I will update more when the full report comes out. This is about all I know right now.

Tiff, not what any of us wanted to hear, I am sure. Like my Teddy would say, "we now know what it is, now lets do something about it!" I am sending you a ton of prayers, good wishes and love.

Re: Not the best update

I know. I'm glad we know what the problem is, now it's time to move on. Overall, I still feel great other than not eating good. Not much pain. I'm a little sleepy, but that might be from the travel.

Tiff, 
keeping you in my thoughts for these new spots to end up dead like the others... You have come far and have had many positive turns. Your attitude is great too, focusing on one thing at a time.

Tiff,

I think the GTX will be a good thing. You have done so well on your chemo so far, so adding something new might just kill those new tumors. Hoping for the best and praying for you.

Re: Not the best update

Hi Tiff,  Ditto with all the waves of positive thoughts and prayers. Glad you are feeling well. Is the "not eating good" because you don't feel like eating or when you eat you feel nauseous? Have you tried juicing or protein shakes? Lots of hugs and love to you and your family. Nancy

Hi Tiffany,
What part of Alabama are you in? I get treated at UAB. How were the original spots treated? I am still waiting to see the oncologist about adjuvent therapy. I hope you hear good news.

Re: Not the best update

Will you get treatment this Tuesday? I'm flying in to town tonite... Let me know and I can stop by to say hello!!

Re: Not the best update

Hi Tiff,

How are you doing on your new chemo? I know I talked to you on FB the day after you had your first treatment and you were ok. Did you feel ok the whole time or did side effects creep in? I hope you get to have your treatment today. Always praying for you.

Love, -Pam
