It's Cancer


Recommended Posts

We saw Dr. Couto today, and Pearl went thru a plethura of tests.

 

It's cancer. Unfortunately, it's a bizarre type. They can't pinpoint which one it is. But he told me that her spleen is so large it's impeding her breathing and eating. He convinced me to go forward with the splenectomy because she'll feel instantly better and will be back to normal within a few days. But, she may still only have weeks left depending on the type of cancer. I'll find out by MOnday.

At least though, it will be a way more comfortable remaining weeks, and liver cancer is a little more tolerable than a splenic rupture.

 

He didn't believe it was her time yet.

Adding my prayers for better news in the days to come. I do think Dr C is good at telling it like it is, and being honest with us, so if he doesn't think it's her time, it's not. Enjoy every moment. Take lots of pictures. Love her. And know we will not stop praying that she pulls through.

Well crap! I was so hoping it might be something else. Still holding out that it's a not so aggressive cancer. Hugs to you all.
