My momma

My mom got the report back from her CT scan today. It says the tumor has increased in size, but her cancer marker (CA19-9) was low. This is also confusing to the doctor. Her doctor wants her to get a PET scan. It's not approved under Medicare, so he is going to try to get her into a study. She says she feels like she's been hit over the head and wasn't expecting this. I kind of have a little bit of that weighty feeling in the pit of my stomach, too. Her attitude has just been remarkable regarding this whole thing.
