Laura – Hi friends, I don’t know how to say this, so I just will. The PET/CT scan showed the melanoma spread to my liver, lungs, stomach and pancreas. Lucie and I found out yesterday around 12:30PM. We both bawled for 2 hours! I always said if I am going to die I want to go out with a big bang, fancy restaurants, warm vacations, etc. I also spent the day in the hospital getting an IV infusion of fluids. I have been so dehydrated from all these night sweats I’ve been getting for a week now. I sweat through 5 T-shirts a night. While there, they did even more blood, urine cultures and liver cultures. By 9PM at night they found out I don’t have any infections and even my urinary tract infection has gone with the help of Amoxycillin. I still have a bad cough though and feel very weak!
What to do now, you say? Well I would continue doing the Gerson Therapy but I can’t seem to get the food down. I have no appetite for it and that’s always been a problem but now it’s keeping me from continuing. I need to be able to eat. I think that’s one reason I got sick. I also feel not well enough to continue. I’m a pit pull though and will find some other way to heal. I just need to feel better and recoup my strength. I’m still listing from weakness as I walk.
Thank you for all the love and support and for the amazing weekend warriors and our weekday angel Brenda! Will keep you posted as we work out our next steps.
