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.
