Oophorectomy

I was going to update sooner but so much has been going on that I could not update without going into great detail as to the decisions that had to be made and all the coordination that had to be done with different doctors.  After all is said and done, there is not that much to write about.

Oophorectomy

We spent this afternoon down at Kapiolani Women’s and Children’s Hospital getting Jane’s pre-op, which, consisted of blood, chest X-Rays and an EKG.  Tomorrow at 7:00 AM Jane will be going in for an Oophorectomy.

I will take Jane to the hospital at 5:30 AM to check in and get her ready for surgery.  It should be a pretty short procedure, according to what the doctor said.  The purpose for this surgery is to push Jane’s body into menopause, causing her body to reduce hormone production.

Perfusion MRI

On Monday Jane will have a perfusion MRI. The MRI tracks blood circulation in the brain.  The reason that she is getting this type of MRI is because the doctors in S.F. are trying to determine the cause of swelling in Jane’s brain.  It is most likely one of two things.  one, the cancer is growing or two, it is an affect of the radiation. Once this is determine the doctors in S.F. will be able to provide a recommendation for treatment.  We’ll know more next week.

Prayer

Please pray that everything goes alright tomorrow, that Jane will be able to have the surgery and that it goes quickly and smoothly.  Pray for the boys and I as we support Jane.

As always thanks for your love, support and most of all your prayers!
