So the final scans are done and read.  Had a VERY long day at BI, playing the waiting game.  The suspicion of the metastases to the brain has been squashed.  THANK GOD.  All the prayers that I needed for today WORKED!  I got lots of hugs from the doctors today who were worried for me all weekend.  As you can imagine, this is huge right now.  I will continue to get a brain MRI every 3 months to make sure that it stays clean and if something were to popup, it would be found early, I am being watched like a hawk.

New Chemotherapy starts bright and early tomorrow morning.  I can’t wait.  I’m looking forward to getting this ball rolling AGAIN.  There have been too many detours.  I don’t have time in my life for cancer, I want my life back.

I truly feel blessed and am amazed daily at the wonderful people who have reached out to Scott and I with their thoughts and prayers and who have either brought or made offers to bring meals and stuff and also to help out with the children.  It’s just awesome and we are so grateful!

We are all taking a deep breath right now and gearing up for the start of what is hopefully going to be the chemo cocktail that starts shrinking these tumors in my Liver as well as the breast tumor and lymph nodes.  My Oncologist also told me today that I may be able to have my mastectomy now (in the distant future) , where last week when the Liver cancer was found, breast surgery was really not an option anymore.  They are confident that because my Breast Cancer is Her2 positive that I will respond well with this Chemo and they can go ahead with the surgery.  We will cross that bridge when it comes, but it is something to look forward to.

I honestly don’t even care if the side effects of tomorrows round are 10X worse than last time, I am just thankful right now that my brain is free and clear.

Enjoy this beautiful weather! Thanks again to all of you! xoxoxo

 

Much Love, Jessica

  1. Jess,

    Relief! Not in the brain. Lets get it taken care of everywhere else now. Jess you really are a real life gift sent from God; anyone who has ever met you or has been lucky enough to know you can say that. Thought that about you that first time we met, a year ago. You inspired me long before your cancer. Prayers and wellness. xo 🙂
