I'm Back...

with more news about my Aunt. The oncology report is in and she does have bone cancer. It appears to be localized in the vertebrae that was partially removed and thankfully is the type of cancer that responds very well to radiation. (Thank Heaven for that!)

She has been told to recover and rehab until her next appointment with the surgeon on the 22nd. After the medical release, she has to visit the Oncologist for a Bone Marrow test. As long as the cancer is not present in her marrow, then the Radiation treatments should be all that she needs.

Thank you all again from the bottom of my heart for the prayers and kind words of encouragement. I have shared them with my Aunt and she is most grateful.

I will be back again tomorrow with a light-hearted post. So much has happened that I need to share.

Ta-ta for now and go hug your loved ones.

That's so scary for your aunt! I hope it's not in the marrow and will continue praying for her.

They can do amazing things to beat cancer nowdays--one of our friends and my aunt are living proof. I'm sure that your aunt will be joining all of those other survivors for a victory lap at a race for the cure event soon too! Best wishes and prayers are with you and your family.
