A Very Late Sunday Selfie and Update.


I wasn't going to do a selfie this week, but then I told my mum she should have made another update before now so we are doing it together.

She had the biopsy last Monday which was CT guided. The radiographer told her there are two masses on her bowel causing concern, one the size of a marble and the other a bit bigger. She asked if there was still any chance that it was adhesions causing her problems and he said he was afraid not. She thought the biopsy would be taken through her belly but was surprised when he told her she had to lay on her front because he was going in through her buttock. It was very sore for a few days.

She has an appointment at the oncology clinic on Friday when she will get the result of the biopsy and also a second CT scan of the top half of her body to ensure there is nothing else of concern.
She will then be told what course of treatment will be the best for her. We will update when we know more.

  1. Flynn, we did not expect to see you today and were so happy to. This was a nice surprise, and we love your photo. Mom says she knows how hard and worrisome it is for your mum to have to wait to find out what is going to be the outcome of the biopsy and what her treatment will be. Our mom prays for both of you every day. Sending lots of love. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

  11. Oh Flynn , we are keeping you, your wonderful mum and your dad in our prayers. We were praying that it was only scar tissue. We do know that there are benign masses and pray that the biopsy finds that to be the case. If there is anything we can do to be of help, just say the word. Sending you all of our love and prayers for a quick recovery for you mum.

  29. The best of luck to your mum, Flynn. The advances made in medicine these days are astounding, so there is every reason to look forward to good news. I am sure you and your dad are the best medicine your mum can have right now. But just in case you need help, tell those doctors to look sharp.
