Journal entry by Carolee Pederson

Today, Sharon, Ron, Chad and myself  and Drew (on phone conference) met with her oncologist, the palliative doctor, and the primary care doctor to discuss Sharon's options. What was decided was to have Sharon start 5 days of radiation treatment that will hopefully help with pain management. She will be in the hospital at least until Monday to stabilize her condition and complete radiation treatment.   

After a short break, and review of her condition, she may undergo 5 more radiation treatments. After that, we are hoping that Sharon will be able to leave the hospital and continue her palliative care at home.

Sharon's was diagnosed last September with Sarcomatoid Carcinoma which is a very rare and aggressive form of cancer. The cancer mass is inoperable. The palliative care doctor discusses hospice options as Sharon's next steps to ensure her comfort and well-being.  

Please feel free to visit Sharon at the Methodist Hospital at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester.  4th Floor, Room 4-417.   You can also reach out by phone or text to Sharon's cell phone.

Thank you again for continued support and love!!
