Hi, I'm sitting here with Ada and we thought we would fill you in on what is going on.
Most importantly, Ada first wants to thank again, the many people that have called and left messages. She is trying to answer them and will continue to do so, it just might take a little while.
Thanks also for the cards, they are lovely and we are using them to decorate the bulletin board in her room. They are definitely adding life to a sterile hospital room!
She is working her way through the hundreds of emails. She is reading each one although she may not be able to answer every one of them, there are a lot. But again, thanks for sending them, she reads and enjoys them.
In reading through the emails, she found some medical information that is incorrect, she wanted me to share with you, the best information we have at this time.
She has been diagnosed with Adenocarcinoma. The doctors at MSK are still working through determining the primary site of the cancer although the most likely candidate is ovarian cancer.
On Monday, she will be undergoing the last three tests needed to determine the primary site. Only after that is known will they be able to establish the medical treatment protocol.
Monday and Tuesday are going to be very intense days for Ada and she asks that you pray to give the doctors discernment and her strength to get through those two days.
We are hoping that with a diagnosis and the first course of treatment behind her, Ada will be released from MSK by next Thursday. We know that there is a portion of her treatment that will be done on an outpatient basis and are preparing for that.
Her spirits are doing a bit better. The waiting is hard but we are spending time, visiting, talking, she is also reading her emails and on the phone. This afternoon, we are both looking forward to a Cello and Piano Julliard recital on the 15th floor. We have secured our wheel chair and we'll be in the first row.
That is it for today from Gloria & Ada...
