After dealing with heartburn for several months, and taking over the counter antacids, Tracy started having more severe symptoms, like vomiting, that made her see a doctor. On January 10th, she had her 1st Endoscopy and on Friday January 18th, her doctor called her into his office and told her she "may" have stomach cancer, that she had "suspicious cell changes". He scheduled her for an Endoscopic Ultrasound for Tuesday January 22nd, in order to take a better look into the stomach and get better biopsies. That procedure landed her in the hospital for 3 days because her heart "freaked out" during her procedure. Being at St. Joe's was a blessing because by then her doctor(s) pretty much knew she had cancer and could order all kinds of scans and tests. (Her heart is perfectly normal, just a fluke thing that happened)
