The chemo/radiation treatments got rid of the lung tumors and a CAT scan revealed no cancer in the brain.
Unfortunately, now the doctors suspect it has move to her liver because they see "lesions" on her liver. Another scan on Thursday will tell them if it's cancer by it's growth. If it is, she's in big trouble and her time is limited.
Please know my prayers are with you and your Mom. Lets hope if it is they caught it early enough to do something. My father died of liver cancer, only by the time they figured it out, it was so far spread he died two weeks later. He was to the doctor two times a week for many months complaining and they still missed it. The system moves to slow. Please keep after them and don't let them drag you/her into the web of test that takes weeks to get with no real answers.
Sounds like you have some good doctors and they are on top of it. Good luck. God bless!! Keep us posted, if you don't mind.
