The best update ever....

Hello!!!!! I am sure most of you know by now, but I just wanted to make it official on the blog. Hailey and I went to MD Anderson (stupid videos coming to you very soon!) and the specialist at MD Anderson said that she does not have any cancer in her body. She does not have get chemo for at least 3 months and she will have a scan at MD ANDERSON in 3 months. 
The doctors/techs at Athens Regional read her previous scans incorrectly, giving us a scare with that "tumor on her bladder" thing. 

Today is a day to celebrate and to thank all of you who have been praying for us, supporting us and I just want to say Namaste (the divine light in me honors the divine light in you) 

Love & Light

Hailey Update

Hey all.
Hailey has new tumors. There is at least one big one on the muscle tissue surrounding her bladder. She will have surgery sometime this week we guess. Her oncologist wanted to wait to send her to TX for scans AND surgery, but the consensus now is that she need surgery ASAP.
How long can she keep doing this? She will be on chemo for the rest of her life - she may get lucky and have a few months off here and there - but basically she will be sick from chemo and cancer forever. What would you do if you were faced with that?
Hailey's attitude is that she will do whatever she has to in order to fight. That is good. I love that. I may have already ditched the whole chemo thing, eating raw kale and carrots and traveling in an RV for a while.

For those who don't know, my mom also has cancer. She had a localized tumor taken out of her breast last week. Mom is doing OK, she is more worried about Hailey than anything. Shocker. She has an appt with the doctor on Tuesday to get her plan together. I am guessing that she will get radiation, I can NOT see Sheila going through chemo.
