Update On My Sister

The update on my sister is mixed. She is still awaiting results on the tumor on her ovary-not sure if it is cancer or not. The spot in her pelvic area they believe is fluid filled but showed no radioactive activity so they are thinking it is not cancerous and can possibly be drained. On the other hand they scanned from her head down to her mid thigh area and two spots in the back of her neck (sinus cavity) in the lymph node area showed up and they showed radioactive activity so they are calling them Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma. 
There only these two small spots at this time and they found nothing else in the area or in the surrounding lymph nodes. She goes to see a specialist this Wednesday in Buffalo about what they need to do for this-surgery and then treatment following that. She will know more Monday from the pelvic ultrasound about the other two spots and what they will need to do about those. 
Please keep her in your prayers. We have never had cancer in our family and this is a new road we will travel.  
This has been a very hard day for my whole family, it is breaking my mom's heart, my dad's and mine too, but there is a special connection as all you moms know between your child and you and no matter how old they get, it is never easy and if you could you would change places with them in a heart beat.
Please also pray for my mom as she is hoping to get her second mammogram here this next week to see what the difference was.  Please pray that is is nothing-I really don't know how much more she can take at this point.
Thanks
Love you all


On This Pathway-
Jill

Hello....I have seen your comments on a few of the blogs I follow as well and decided to pop over for a visit. I have read your last several posts about your sister and wanted you to know that I have lifted her in prayer today (and your mom, all the rest of you)and will continue to do so. It is so difficult I know to watch loved ones going through what seems like just one thing after another. Many blessings to you all. Debbie
