Hope you are getting by alright. My aunt went back for the results of her MRI/PET scan and they believe that in addition to starting in her uterus and moving into her cervix, there is also a spot on her abdomen. She goes in for surgery this Monday, July 13, and they will do a hysterectomy and take a closer look at the abdomen ... the surgeon thinks the area with the spot can be removed. I'm not sure what they're going to do with the lymph nodes ... I don't recall from her last consult if they found any lymph node involvement from the scans, but I hope that as long as they're in there for the surgery they take them out. The oncologist said having it spread to the abdomen makes it stage IV, so her diagnosis is worse than before, but we're just going to take it one step at a time and get her through the surgery. Then we'll move on to six weeks of 5-day a week external radiation treatments, with one internal treatment a week added, and after that they want to start chemo.

I continue to pray for you and hope you will all keep my aunt in your thoughts as she faces surgery next week.

Take Care!
