Nice to have the family together at home again.

Final pathology is hoped to be in today. The surgeon came in on Monday with a possible change up on the diagnosis - both are crappy but we are in good spirits nonetheless.

It’s a Glioblastoma Multiforme IDH mutation or Oligo........ (some long word).

Thank goodness Kristin is incredibly positive about this or we would all be a wreck. She should be a case study of how to handle such a difficult situation with elegance.

Yesterday we were able to wash her hair - first time in 10 days. She felt brand new she said. Today the girls are all going off for pedis and nails. I’ll be getting her walking sticks at REI to help keep her balance. Hoping that might suffice instead of a walker.

Vent time:

The final pathology isn’t complete yet so everything is at a standstill. BCBS won’t approve treatment until it’s in. I understand red tape and insurance woes but this riles me up. Today makes two weeks since brain surgery and they are waiting for some last part to move on.

If anyone has any insight on what paperwork I should be working on for health proxy, insurances, ownership changeover etc... I’m all ears. I didn’t think I’d need to consider those things this soon. PM or post up here is fine.

Nothing wrong with that vent sir.....you guys have earned it. Regrettably, insurance company guidelines are pitiful. I have known patient family to call until they get a sympathetic ear. Some have used advocates from organizations that specialize in specific disease states with limited success. Thank God her attitude is rock solid!

X2. My aunt is fighting the same battle. Not sure who her insurance is through but I know she has to be tenacious about putting pressure on them to get movement. Good thing has been after some prodding they take care of it. I'll continue praying for you all!

A couple weeks into the radiation / chemo fight now. Today will be number 14 of the 30 treatments prescribed.

Alas, about a third of her hair came out this weekend. Fortunately, it’s on the back of her head so she doesn’t see it every time she passes a mirror. Kristin is taking it like a trooper but I know it pains her.

We feel the prayers and prayers to the rest of you in similar situations.

Lord,
You have taught us that faith as small as a mustard seed can grow into an amazing tree.
Today we give you our little seed of faith. We place it firmly in the ground of your word and we water it with truth. The warmth of your love will make it grow.
Today we ask by faith that you would bring healing to Kristin from this cancer. We place our trust in you. May this seed sow healing into every area where the tumour has emerged. May it grow into a strong work, redeeming and restoring with great strength and power.

Amen.

I wasn't able to read the entire post and I'm not sure if you provided an update. My sister passed away a few months ago from Glioblastoma (Brain Cancer) She went into remission after 2 years and later was rediagnosed and battled another 3 years. Doc said she may live 6 months.... She stayed with us for almost 9 years. We were able to make sure she had a quality life vs quantity.. She is truly a miracle. Your post hit home with me.. I am praying for you and hope for the best... Love and prayers. I am so sorry.
