Girls Write Out
Tuesday, August 16, 2011
Di's h-pylori test came back negative so the treatment won't be antibiotics. She was so weak that they quickly admitted her to the hospital up in Zion Cancer Treatment Center. Love that place! Dr. Williams came in to see her. There is something about that doctor that just encourages all of us when we see her. Di was so uplifted when the doc came by.

Di has to get a feeding tube tonight and she's so upset about it. She hates something in her throat. It will go through the nose and down the throat to the small intestine. Her poor stomach needs a break. Dr. Williams promised that by Friday they'd have a new plan of action to kick this cancer in the rear end!

Thank you so much for all your prayers! Di is so appreciative of your love and support and so are the rest of us!

Feeding tubes suck to get when your conscious. And not much fun when you have a itch nose....wonder if they make miniture knitting needles to help with this? I hope and pray that this will be an opportunity for some book research and that Di will find humour gems in this dark valley

I just found out about Diann's cancer. I went to her CaringBridge page and read the whole journal from the beginning. The last post said she had a slightly high result from the CA-125, but the doctor was confident that it could be resolved. Now I am reading that she has all these awful things going on, and I am wondering when all of this started. Is there somewhere like CaringBridge that I could just read updates, without scrolling through page after Facebook or blog page? I am so sad that she went from celebrating nearing the end of chemo to what is going on today. I will pray every day for her healing. I am so very glad that she has friends like all of the women on this blog!
