Combat Report June 7, 2010

To my most loyal of soldiers I have a field report for all of you. We have won a battle, but we did not win the war. What that all means is that the tumor did not shrink off the Hepatic Artery, so it could not be removed. What they did do is called an interoperative radiation protocol. They moved any and all organs that were in the way so that the radiologist could directly zap the tumor. Unfortunately, that was all that they could do. The next battle will be to go back on the chemochotherapy regime I was on October, November and December...three weeks on and two weeks off and this will continue throughout the year. I will continue to get various cat scans to determine if the cancer has spread anywhere. So as to quote,my son Jeff," the rest of this war will be a great big crap shoot!!!" You all know what that means... please, keep me in your thoughts and prayers whenever you can!

Lots of love,


  1. You continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Hang in there Tricia, our thoughts and prayers are with you.
