No pain, nothing out of the ordinary until a couple wks ago, my right leg swelled up. Almost double the size of my left leg. I went to the Dr who was very concerned about my having a blood clot in my leg. They did 2 ultrasounds to confirm they found nothing... Nothing X 2 is still nothing right? Uh, no. Not in my case anyway. Lol I could always make something out of nothing... (l crack myself up sometimes)
I asked the Dr about a place in my lower abdomen the I had decided was just scar tissue. They did a ct scan and Voi la. There it was. A sarcoma making its way so proudly through my stomach muscles. A sarcoma is rare. Very rare. 1-2 people per million will have to deal with a sarcoma and usually on the arms or legs.
Lucky me. In my abdomen, pressing on the veins in my leg preventing the blood from flowing back out.
After the biopsy to confirm the diagnosis, I began to understand that once aggravated these things know what pain is and are going to show you. But alas, take heart, Dr's can take care of that too.
We will leave for Portland in a couple hours to OHSU. My journey beginning... A website has been established to help Jan and Aaron with their ever mounting medical bills. www.giveforward.com thank you for your consideration.
It's a cold freezing rain, foggy kind of day in Bend, OR today. Happy to hear rain is headed into California but will be praying they don't get flooding and or mud slides that the weather man was discussing. We were planning to make a trip to Redding, CA this weekend for their healing services at Bethel Church but have had to postpone it due to the weather. Rain, freezing rain, and snow by the weekend. A couple inches is all but after just having had 2 ft. Of snow here, we are not going to leave anything to chance. So, home is the best place for us for now. I'm still doing well. No changes. Coming down with a little cold I think. Chest is congested so that's kind of a give away. Thanks to all of you for continuing prayers. God carries me everyday... Feeling so blessed.
