BENEFITING: 3 LITTLE BIRDS 4 LIFE
In the meantime, I'm on medical leave at work. I was living off long term disability. I went back to work somewhat against doctors advise May 1st, 2012 part time, full time June 1, 2012. I was let go Nov 2012. No reason given. In Jan 2013, a regular scan showed that I had some active nodules on my lungs. They were spreading and clustering. A Pet scan was ordered in March and it revealed I had liver tumors. A biopsy concluded in March 2013 that it was indeed liver mets. I had surgery April 16, 2013 to remove the left lobe of my liver, part of the right lobe to remove the 3 tumors. Chemo started in May 2013. Folfiri/5FU/Avastin. Since that time I've dropped the 5Fu since it caused extreme chest pain for me. I've got 2 more treatments to go. And I've had a CT scan that showed I have one stable nodule on my left lung around my heart area and my liver has either a cyst or lesion on the right side. A PT scan will be done either the end of October, early November to determine what is going on. I will follow up with my liver surgeon at that time. Some friends of mine suggested I apply. Life is so precious. I pray I get to see my children marry and see grandbabies one day. No rush. I've started a bucket list. I want to actively start participating in life. No more sidelines stuff.
