Hello everyone, thanks for visiting. I am creating this site to make it easier for family and friends to keep up. I don’t anticipate a lot of updates, but I will keep up with the little things that are going on.
In May I received the surprise diagnosis of intrahepatatic cholangiocarcinoma. I wasn’t having any symptoms, just fatigue. It was discovered during a yearly CT scan for another unrelated issue. Unfortunately the prognosis is not good and the survival rate is slim, but I am fighting! The chemo regimen is tough, but so far I am hanging in there. I have had numerous CT scans, PET scans and I am at Stage 4 as the cancer has spread to my liver and bones. On the plus side, I don’t really have any pain. The chemo wears me out, but I have a great support system. Timm & Audrey and Brittany & Cory have made sure I am well taken care of. I also have a great group of family and friends. I am scheduled to continue chemo through September, this could change, but for now that is the plan. That is great timing because Baby Graham #4 is arriving on September 14th, so I should be feeling good for lots of baby boy snuggles.
That should explain a few things, thanks for reading. Prayers are appreciated!!!
