Well I have tried starting this thread for a week now, I just haven't been able to finish. I could really use the support you guys and gals provide. Jessy's cancer has gone into her spine and the radiation started on that last Tuesday, the same day she got the last dose of whole head radiation. Unfortunately the cancer has spread to the lining of her brain. There is nothing they can do for that. They will continue to treat it as it lands in other parts of the body, as per her choice, and they are going to try a radical chemo that requires injection directly to the brain, it will only buy a little time, if it works. It's pretty new and from what I understand, has had minor success in trials. As far as the timeline, the Oncologist says maybe two months, the Radiologist is not being as straight with her though. Best case scenario is six months give or take. She remains upbeat and positive and has decided she will do everything she can to fight. I am taking her to meet with the Neurosurgeon tomorrow and then to radiation. Many people have pulled together and have done some really great things, bringing meals over, helping with the kids after school, sending donations and putting together a benefit for her. We are all grateful for everything. I just need an outlet and some kind words from my "family" here, I need to be strong and upbeat for and around her, and all of your good energy can help me to be that for her. Sorry for the rambling, but I haven't been thinking straight this last week.
