Mums is having another ERCP today

I really hope it goes well. I'm sure you all do, too! 

I talked to mummy last night. She sounded good and had rested most of the day. She and paps had a late lunch because she had to fast for today's procedure. Tomorrow, she'll meet with the transplant team to discuss that rather frightening option. Then, on Friday, she'll meet with oncology -- finally -- to discuss chemo and any other options. 

*Sigh*

P.S. Mums really, really hearts all of your daily posts, so 
keep 'em coming. They help her through each day.

  1. GIRLFRIEND -- you never do anything the simple - easy way! For Paulette - it's always an ADVENTURE!

You know how many people are "LIFTING up UP" but it comes down to you and Greg in that roller coaster seat! Lean on him and HOLD ON! We LOVE YOU!

  7. Hi Paulette and Family,

    I read the blog daily and want you to know you are in our thoughts and prayers.....also the thoughts and prayers of people you don't even know!

    I am in a caregiver support group (Taryn, Greg--you guys are welcome to join anytime!) with cancercare.org and one woman said your blog is on her desktop---she checks it more than once a day. (Her husband has the same kind of rare cancer and Taryn's information is so easy-to-read and helpful, she is so grateful for this blog.)

    We love you guys; we know this is a tough road; we know you are strong enough to walk it together. And you know you aren't alone! :) Love, Cousin Lisa

  8. Paulette--
    I'm in Denver playing with my boys. Spent the morning at the park playing with cars and racing them down the slipper slide!

    I sure have been thinking of you. If lifting up is where it's at--I know there are lots of us with our hands held high!

    I'm so glad you are at Mayo--of all the places I had my folks, I had the most faith in Mayo--they are so good at working together as a whole clinic instead of each for himself.

    Love you lots--Janet K

  9. Paulette and Greg,
    I hope that the ERCP went well today and that they were able to get the drain to working again. I know that these two things are very important. Please know that the entire crew is thinking of you and praying for you both and the rest of the family. We had a company lunch today thanks to Kevin (shipped the cattle today) and had several ask what the latest was. We hope that the transplant team delivers good news tomorrow. Good Luck! We will be anxiously awaiting for that good news. Hope your are getting well rested!
    Aimee and the Gang

    PS. Greg,hope your hand really is healing and you weren't telling me a tale!

  11. Dear Paulette, Greg, and all:
    Just a note to let you know we're praying non-stop for the rainbow in these clouds. We hope the ERCP procedure went well, and you are resting to get ready for your discussions tomorrow. Have peace in the knowledge that Jesus is steering the motorcycle. Just hang on, and God's healing grace and the protection of prayers from your MANY friends and family will do the rest. Love, The Dowlings
