Lots of love and prayers for you Kris. Fingers and everything else crossed that the blood vessels are in the right place for surgery and good liver function tests.

Hi Kris, I saw this quote today and thought of you…..
“The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them.
-George Bernard Shaw”

Yesterday I went for my chemo and had a long talk with my doctor. It was actually funny as my best friend is here and she is an oncologist and she grilled my doctor about my treatment plan. It was interesting. i took in the study on Gemzar and cisiplatin but we decided to keep to Xeloda and oxilplatin for the time being.
The surgeons in the big hospital dont think my tumor is resectable (yet) but given my age and otherwise good health, they have ordered an angiography to determine how the blood vessels are attached to the tumor just to make sure surgery is not possible now. That sounds like good news. I like that they are exploring all avenues.
I also talked to my doctor about harvesting some eggs so I could have children later if I survived. I said can we talk about this if my scan showed tumor shrinkage and possible surgery and she said of course. That was quite possitive too. I was expecting her to point out I was terminal. We had a wonderful conversation that I explained that I knew that 99% of the time people with my tumor placement and size die, but that 1% is people like me and that I will never give up and that I have more to live for and that I am stubborn. She agreed that the 1% are people like me and that is why we most explore all our options.
Anyway, (sorry for the long post) I am off to MRI today and an angiography. Please think good thoughts. I want this surgery so much and I hope that the blood vessels are in the right place for surgery. Tomorrow I have an ultrasound with contrast to check my liver. They are still unsure if I have cancer in my liver or not, so they are checking the functioning of my liver to see how it is doing. So send all good vibes my way.
