This blog has gotten away frem me

Wow, it has indeed.  Let's see if I can catch up.

Last Wednesday I wend in to UT for an MRI, trying to figure out what's going on with my legs.  I had labs done before that and freaked out the nurses with my high blood pressure.  They wanted me to stop up to see a doctor (mine was absent).  The MRI was fine.  While seeing the doctor, he was concerned about my blood pressure but also took a look at the MRI and suggested that I quit regorafineb to concentrate on what the deal was with my brain.  The doc was concerned about lesions up and down my spinal cord.  He offered to get me started with a chemo regimin, but I decided to go back to Baylor.

Friday, I got in to see my doc at Baylor.  I did an MRI and CT scan.  Eric talked to my regular doctor (do I have enough doctors??) on Monday, and he wanted me to see a radiation oncologist.  Hospice was also tossed around, and we'll talk to those folks tomorrow.

The rad onc was awesome, answered all our questions, and suggested that there was no one rignt answer.  We're to think about it and get in tough with him tomorrow.

It's hard becuse I picture myself having all this immortality, but in reality, I so don't.

The rad onc asked me how I was so tough.  I said that I have a tough God.  And I definitely do.  Prayers would be awesome.

  1. Praying constantly! You and your family are on my mind non-stop.
    You are so tough, the radiation oncologist is right.
    You are my inspiration all day everyday...the little angel on my shoulder reminding me to love my kids more, love my husband more, love life more.
    Hang in there - you have so many people loving and supporting you and holding you in prayer.

  6. Yes, you do have a tough God! A God that loves you more than any of us can possibly imagine. I love that response. Lots and lots of prayers still coming from here! (BTW, I love sitting here watching the globe revolving on the right hand side of your page and imagining how all these people from all over the world are in your corner, praying and lifting you up. It's like we're chanting your name on the side of the boxing ring.) Love you! Bonnie

  18. You and God are tough! Continued prayers for you and your family. I just wanted to encourage you to take advantage of Hospice if you qualify. Even if you are nowhere near your home going. They are wonderful and amazing and will help you to live life as much and as fully as possible. They also will offer support and counseling for you and Eric and the kids. So often people think Hospice is giving up, and only call them at the last minute. Having worked with them in Pastoral care, I can tell you that is just not so, and I encourage people to call in Hospice as soon as they are allowed to. And people do graduate from Hospice, it doesn't happen very often, but it does happen. I keep praying for a miracle, but if that doesn't happen you can't be in better hands than Hospice.

    Much love, Pastor Katie

  19. We do have a tough (and amazing) God! What a blessing that we can take from his strength each and every day, every hour, and every moment when our strength seems to waiver. I am praying that the Lord will give you strength and comfort in the moments, hours, days, or even years to come!

    In Christ,
    Casey

  22. Sheri, Your strength and courage are an inspiration to me! And I know that God is behind it. You have taught me that life is so short, and we should be living each and everyday as if it were our last day. We are on this planet for a reason. We need to strive to do our best, love one another. I will continue to pray asking God for strength, courage,comfort and healing for you and Eric, Reese and Eli!!! Love, Mom

  28. Please don't think that I've forgotten you. I haven't. I think about you a couple times a day (not a stalker) and you're always the first person I pray for morning and night. I won't stop praying.

  30. Sheri,

    You and you're family are in our prayers. I know I haven't seen you in quite a while, but Jeremy and Anna have kept me up-to-date over the years. I will always remember the blast we all had at their wedding in Hawaii! We pray that you find strength, comfort, and peace. Know that we, along with many others (as you can tell on your blog), are thinking about and praying for you and your family.
