Today we had two appointments; one with Dr. Colton for the biopsy and PET scan results and the second with Dr. Manubens, her cardiologist.
The good news is that the PET scan showed NO cancer anywhere else in Mom's body. The biopsy results, however, did confirm that the mass next to her left vocal cord is cancerous. Mom was an absolute trooper. Her courage is amazing and a true inspiration.
Our next step will be to get additional opinions from our local oncologists and also the doctors at UCSF. Dr. Manubens enlightened us to the fact that both he and Dr. Mirda, our local oncologist, trained at UCSF and are familiar with the facility and the staff. This gave us all an added edge of confidence in getting their recommendations.
We expect to be making some decisions on a course of treatment very soon - please continue the prayers, we trust our faith will lead us to make the right choices.
