A rapid decline

Mom was doing pretty well on her treatment.  It's been so nice to have "her" back and then she started experiencing chronic pain in her leg.  It's always devastating to get results and hear of cancer growth.  Mom and Dad planned a trip to Arizona to see Troy and Sabra and Mom started another round of radiation when she got back to help with the pain in her leg.  She then developed chronic pain in her upper body and started having symptoms like, dizziness   extreme pressure in her head, not steady on her feet, memory loss, confusion, temporary loss of vision, headaches, can't seem to follow a thought process very well, looking at a clock and not being able to tell wheat time it is.  Yesterday we got the news that we had all been dreading yet expecting to hear.  "The cancer has spread to her brain and it's pretty significant."


The plan... finish up this set of radiation on her leg then do another 12 on her head to help relieve some of the pressure.

We are devastated!  That's all I can say about it right now.  


  1. This breaks my heart. She is always in our prayers. We love her and will continue to pray. Hang in there. Call if you guys need anything. Even though we don't live that close, I'll do whatever I can. Love you!

  2. I am so sorry she has had to get sicker! My heart hurts for you and for her. :(
