I swear to you and my family and random strangers in the grocery store that I am trying to not ride a roller coaster or fret about every little thing. But since my Gma is a big part of my life and she has cancer, there are only so many places I can hide.
Last Friday more tests results revealed that the cancer has spread. And further away from the tumor site than originally thought.
She has decided no chemo. I’m very content with this in the fact that 1) chemo cannot cure this kind of cancer, just supress it; 2) Gma took a lot of time making this decision and it was very informed; and 3) she is still healthy enough and with-it enough to make the decision herself.
This week she wanted to buy more muumuus since bloating often occurs as the lymph nodes grow. But she also felt she needed new makeup, so she has definitely is not just laying around waiting to die. Unless she just wanted to make sure she has a pretty face when she goes. I didn’t ask.
