Today we brought Lizzy back to Cincy Childrens and she was admitted. Coming back to a hospital and being admitted, then having a steady stream of doctors and nurses come into the room was eerily familiar. It felt like we had done this before.
Lizzy will be admitted tomorrow (Wed) at Cincinnati Childrens. She will have surgery on Thursday to remove the tumor in her lung and insert a port. We’ve been told to expect 2-3 days in the hospital. Chemo will start at some point next week and will involve several instances of being admitted for the chemo treatment. Still working out the details on the dates of those treatments,
So, here we go again. Lizzy is Small but Fierce, and God’s Got This!!!!!!
(end of update)
The CT confirmed a nodule in the lung. The doctor is sure it is cancerous. Lizzy will need surgery this week to remove the nodule and re-insert a port. We are looking at a 40 week regimen of chemo, which will involve much stronger drugs and more side effects. These chemo treatments will require inpatient admission each time. We also have to meet with the fertility specialist and make some decisions.
Lori and I know all of you have been praying and we so appreciate it. It is only through Gods strength that we are standing right now. This is not at all what we expected today and it is overwhelming at the moment. We humbly ask for your continued prayers for our sweet Lizzy.
Dear friends –
we are in Cincinnati right now for Lizzy’s 3 month scans. Unfortunately the x-ray showed a spot in her chest. What we thought was going to be a quick and easy visit has suddenly turned much more serious. The doctor has now ordered a CT scan with contrast to try and figure out what the spot is.
Will you please lift Lizzy up in prayer right now? Please pray the spot is not malignant and is simply some tissue growth.
I’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
