    Decision Point

    My chemotherapy is dictating a blood transfusion & I have ONLY 6 rounds left after 10 rounds of Chemotherapy. WHY? Blood (Red & White blood count low) Blood Pressure low (112/50) low. I have no cancer in lung & Chemo was prescribed to eliminate ant spreading cancer, so I am indecisive about this BLOOD TRANSFUSION?

    After 16 rounds of chemotherapy & 2 blood transfusions I've been blessed with a report stating, "cancer in remission."

    3 spots are found?

    Oh No

    I was told by the VA hospital that a PT scan showed 3 spots (1 middle of chest & 2 underarm). Another PT scan is scheduled. Next week take old PT scan to JEFF UH for their opinion + PRAY real hard!
