Family and friends, Wednesday night I was admitted into Seton hospital and learned that my cancer is back and has moved into my brain and lungs! Tests are on going to determine whether it's metastatic breast cancer or newly formed. As results from 2014 are not showing any signs of cancer but new tests are now showing that I have two major tumors on my brain with several other lesions on my brain. The two tumors is what is causing the swelling and irritation around the tumors which is causing symptoms I'm having with motor skills and coordination. There is one large mass on one of my lungs and several smaller lesions in both. I'm currently waiting to see if I'm going to get a biopsy on the lung or move forward with two brain surgeries then radiation and chemo will take care of the lesions in the lungs and brain so the lung biopsy seems unnecessary at this time. but the team of doctors have not met yet to determine the best course of action. I'm all about going the aggressive route which is to remove the two tumors in my brain and let chemo and radiation take care of the rest. this is complicated and very scary. After the doctors talk I will know more later today. Also depending on the outcome of the meeting with the doctors I will know if I'm having the biopsy today or the brain surgeries on Monday! Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers and I will keep you guys posted! 😇💙🙏. I'm going to ask my sister Christi Bernard Garivey to set up a Page on the caring bridge for keeping you guys updated. More to come but please keep me in your thoughts and prayers and know that if I don't get back to you because I'm overwhelmed And inundated with inquiring minds and loved ones needing to know what's going on. I love you very dearly and I appreciate your concerns. Please stay tuned peace out
