The News isn't always so joyful.



I hate to share 'not fun' news, but sometimes that is what we have.
Last week my Mom was finally given an answer to her health issues; ovarian cancer.
Yeah. That pretty much sucks rotten clams.

She has a great attitude. 
The kicker is that she had a hysterectomy at age 40 and the (%$#$!!!) Dr. only took one of her ovaries; she was under the impression that both were to be taken....she was mad at him at the time. Imagine how she feels about him now.
My mom is sweet as heck southern woman with lovely manners....but I'd hate to hear what she would say to that man right now.  
We're only thinking positive thoughts. ONLY.

She's in the hospital now and will start chemo today.
Not exactly sure of the protocol; there was also mention of surgery.
I'm flying up there today.

In case you didn't know this, my Mom is the bomb.com. 

I declared earlier this week that I'm going to have my ovaries removed.
They're taking up prime real estate and I've NO need for them anymore. THEN, I saw on the news that Angelina Jolie is having hers removed. 
Trend Setter WHO?? Trend setter Suz.

If you recall, I had that BRCA test last June and it was negative, but I'm still going to seriously talk with my Dr. about this.

Anyhoo....positive thoughts, prayers, good mojo and whatever else you can come up with would be great.
Anyone proficient at Indian healing dances? If so, please record that for my viewing pleasure.

XOXOXO

Suz, I am so so sorry to hear this!! I'm sending lots of positive thoughts her way. Your way,too!! I would be furious with the doctor right now and I hope there are steps your mom can take dealing with this. I had a complete hysterectomy a few years ago and it was a decision I never regretted. Go talk to your doctor, hopefully he'll be able to give you some good info!

We'll definitely keep your Mom (and your whole family) in our prayers. A good attitude can do wonders when fighting cancer. Since she's related to you, I'm hopeful that she will beat this thing.
