|My sisters Joanne & Debra ♥|
To hell with positivity.......today started with a phone call from my mom.
My sister Joanne, who has cervical cancer, is in the hospital. She has been having alot of pain & has been going for a ton of tests. Her cancer has already spread to her chest, she will be having more radiation to deal with that. However , her recent bone scan also showed a mass in her back as well. This mass is breaking the bones in her spine . Her bones are brittle from her past radiation so it does not take much to break them. Her team of doctors have decided she will need emergency surgery to remove this mass. If her bones break any more it could cause her to become paralyzed. This morning she was admitted to the hospital, I am not sure yet when the surgery will take place , but soon. They will need to stabilize her spine after the mass is removed.
My mom is so upset, of course she wonders why Joanne, why not her? She has lived her life & Joanne has so much more to live. It is hard to think positive right now, I am angry, I hate cancer & I hate that it is happening to Joanne.
So, we will say more prayers & think as positively as we can for a surgery with no complications, & for Joanne to recovery quickly with as little pain as possible.
