I wanted to start a new thread for Lita, so she will only have to post on one thread. She has received some bad news this week. Let's all come together and walk with her through this.

Lita, I posted on another thread that you posted on. Hope this is helpful that now you will only have to post once and everyone will know where to find you. Keeping you in my prayers.

Thanks again, Kandy, for setting this up. It will make it so much easier to keep everyone in the loop.

So after 24 hours of soul-searching and all the unbelievable LOVE & SUPPORT from all you ladies, I've decided to contact Dr. Benjamin Fisch, radiation oncologist. and get HIS opinion. (I have a better rapport with him than my regular MO anyway.) I want to see whether surgery is a possible option if we can shrink the two biggest brain tumors down. I know other St IV sisters have had brain met surgery, and they're still here to tell the tale. Can I also take some pill-form chemo that will cross the blood/brain barrier and do some good? So I'm still holding on to a hair's width of hope here. (And I have baby-fine hair, mind you.)

Depending on what Dr. Ben says, I'll make my decision regarding hospice. You have all been exceptionally supportive, and I hope I haven't brought everybody down too much re: hospice, but this will be one of the TOUGHEST decisions I've made in my (what I consider) SHORT life!

Today was a little shaky. Lots of dizziness and some head throbbing. Scary part was I was having some of this while still SITTING :o(.

Took just ONE 4 mg Decadron steroid pill (dexamethasone generic). They want me to take FOUR of them per day, but I'm afraid I won't be able to sleep on that. It IS a steroid after all, ladies, and unless I want to "autumn" clean my house at 3 am with dizziness and a throbbing head, I don't think it's verywise. I may TITRATE up to 8 mg/day, but we shall see. Decadron has LOTS of nasty SEs.

Had a good, long chat with one of my brothers, and he thinks I'm jumping the gun with the hospice. He says TALK to someone else; get a second opinion. "You can still walk with a walker and talk in complete sentences." Of course, all that could change in an instant if I stroke out or have a couple of seizures. As I said in earlier posts, I have my POLST in place, and I'll have to update my "Advance Directive" once MO comes back from her vacation.

I'm also going to contact a group of cannabis drs/nurses who specialize in IDC and see what they recommend as far as upping the crap out of my CBD oil intake.There's also an organization called "The Shelter Project" that will help pay for the HIGH amt I will have to take per day to combat this beast. CBD can also help with swelling and inflammation, so it's definitely gonna be considered. B4, I would just take an edible when I was having a lot of pain, or take a couple of drops of CBD tincture under my tongue to help with sleep. Last night was SO HOT here in No. Calif, that I don't think anyone slept well - I took some oil, and it didn't help at all. It was 107 yesterday and 106 today. We hardly ever get days like that, and A/C only cools your house down so much.

Sorry this is so long, but I want to keep everyone informed, and this is the best way to do it.

Once again, thanks for all your love and support, and please keep praying for me specifically to make the right decision and be at peace with it. Also pray for my DH and DD. You just can't imagine how hard this is for them. DD is beside herself. She was weeping in the bathroom last night. I don't want to leave them this soon. I know the creator of the universe has a plan for us all.

Bless you all,

Lita

Lita, I am so sorry you got that terrible news. You know, you can get hospice on board even while you pursue treatment. I'm sure hospice will be very good to you, and I won't be surprised if you surpass their expectations. You can send them away later if you don't need them. There really isn't more I can say, just holding your hand in spirit.

Lita, please don't feel like you are being rushed into making a decision as far as hospice is concerned. Take as much time as you want or need. Even if you decide to go with hospice, you can change your mind, so don't think once you do, that's it. You just got this news yesterday, obviously you and your family are experiencing all kinds of emotions right now and all that is normal. Just sit back and take a deep breath and take your time to just think about what you want to do, weighing the pros and cons. Please don't let anyone pressure you into a decision. This is your life, you have the right for decision making. I will pray that you are completely at peace with any decisions you make. I'm not sure, there really is a right or wrong decision, you must believe in whatever you decide to do and it will be the right decision for you. I hope you feel the warmth and love that we all have for you. We are all there with you. I hope you can get some rest tonight, it will help clear your mind. I also am taking steroids twice a day, so I get what you mean as far as side effects. Keeping you uplifted in prayer, May tomorrow be a little clearer for you

Lita, have you ever been on avastin? My cousin's wife had brain cancer and that particular drug shrunk her tumor to 1/3 of its original size. She didn't have BC that metastasized but a brain cancer. It might work for you so they can shrink the tumors. Praying for you, I believe avastin was easier to take than some of the chemo drugs she took.

I'm feeling so proud to know you Lita as much as these threads allow. You sound like you have a plan and anything can happen to any of us but in the time between we fight this. You made my day yesterday when you posted the second opinion idea. You are an inspiration to us all. Take care of yourself and I'm very hopeful for you to put this behind you just like all that radiation you recently got through.

Kandy thanks for starting this thread it's very thoughtful of you and I will be book marking it along with the others
