Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. I went to hospital ER early in the morning (2 am) on January 28 with "chest" and back pains... Thinking heart. When EKG came back good but enzymes high, we were relieved to hear "typically gall bladder" still laying on a gurney in the hall (about 6 am). However, they wanted to do an MRI to check. So, Tuesday night, from my ER "room," I went for the scan (now 19 hours in ER). I, of course, was Cecil's best MRI patient EVER & didn't have to redo any pictures (you KNOW I must be the best). So... on Wednesday, my life changed from thinking about a routine outpatient procedure to BIG and SCARY...pancreatic cancer (hr 40 later and moved onto the hospital floor). I had biopsy and stent (because my mass was blocking the bile ducts) on Thursday.
We are EXTREMELY fortunate, blessed, lucky, karmically clean... Because the mass is small, hasn't spread, is operable, I have the MOST AMAZING, "top of their game" team of forthcoming, humble, caring, skilled. surgeons and oncology support. PLUS, Alan, Micalah, & Quinn are, as always, my light, strength, rocks, & reason to be cured. And... I have even more prayer, positive light, thoughts, hugs, good vibes, & good ole confidence and love from the larger Team Gone-YAY!! We'll keep everyone posted & informed (and in my headspace) here. Thank you and I love you all!! 💜💜💜
