Uplifting Results

Today Priscilla has seen Dr Nicholas and been told that she "only" has a primary tumour ie one that has not spread to other organs or areas. As she says, "I feel now that there is light at the end of the tunnel".

There's also been vomiting and nausea caused by her anxiety which is common in cancer patients apparently.

A visit to the wig clinic has Priscilla topped with this beautiful short wig that is so perfect for her. (We need a better photo, Sweetie, please) The wigs are available as a free loan and go back to the clinic to be offered out again once Priss no longer needs it. Wigs cost hundreds of dollars to buy so this is really a wonderful service.

Biopsy testing is on-going in Toronto so we still don't know what stage the tumour is at but please share our relief that it hasn't spread.
Added later...the testing in Toronto is on-going as Priscilla's doctors were 1000% sure it was caused by Gorlin Syndrome which they've decided she doesn't have...they are quite baffled as to where and why this cancer is occurring in this young adult!

Bye bye for now,

That's Freakin Awesome!! Did anyone else just feel a ten pound weight off their shoulders? I didn't realise how much I worrying until I heard this.

It's going to be a long road, but you've got this in the bag Priscilla. You won't just get through this, you're going to kick its butt.
