Bobbi wasn't feeling well and had what she believed was unexplained water weight gain, so she went to the doctor and tests were ordered. The doctor's initial suspicions of liver problems were incorrect, and so other tests were ordered. On June 21, the results came back that they found multiple nodules lining various parts of the abdomen and it was confirmed to be ovarian cancer. Further testing and scans were performed and on June 28, more tests were done at Mayo in Rochester to determine what treatment plan would be most effective. Unfortunately, the tests done in Rochester showed there were numerous masses throughout the abdomen and up to the heart, which means the big surgery they had been hoping for is not an option at this time. The planned course of action now is nine weeks of chemotherapy, followed by the big surgery, followed by nine more weeks of chemotherapy - we don't know if that treatment plan will change or what will follow, but that is where it begins. We will update more as the treatment takes progress and she works hard to kick her stage IV cancer's butt!
