In hospital

Sorry, this update is from my phone, so it is short. Since my last post, I was not feeling well. I wasn't eating, sleeping, could barely get out of bed.  the progression of the cancer in my abdominal was fast. monday i went to er as i woke up and could not swallow. once there i had an mri of throat which did not show anything. docs then learned i was extremely dehydrated and admitted me to hospital. i have been receiving fluids and feel a little better. still cannot eat, so that is a major concern. trying to get a picc line put in and get nutrients that way which is iv. Tumors are causing a lot of pain that we are trying to manage. also just got back from mri of brain to check for melanoma. i have not been having symptoms. just checking.

Again, sorry so short. Just wanted everyone to know what is going on

Tina's mom repsonding on behalf of Tina. She wants Everyone to know how much she appreciates your prayers and concerns. She read your comments most days just can't react as of now. Tina rec'd her pic line today. She was also found to be low on blood and recieve some much needed today. They are also able to hook up a IV pain med machine tonight. This should give her the much needed relief from all the pain she's been having. The Doc's are working very hard on pain management and nutrients right now.
We all know what a fighter my daughter is and as expected she is fighting hard now. Her Grampa says she the strongest woman he knows.
