Lexi Is Home!

Alexis spent the first 67 days of her life in St. Vincent's Women's Hospital but today...she is finally home. I was blessed to be able to go with Kendra and Jason to pick Lexi up and bring her home. A photographer is always needed!!!

I haven't written about my situation because to me, Alexis was too much on our minds. But now that she is home, at least until she returns for heart surgery in a couple of months, I'll tell my story:

On May 22, I went to my doctor due to blood in the urine. The following Tuesday, I went to EGH and had ultrasounds and cat scans. While on the table for the catscan, I knew they had seen something since they called my doctor for further scans.

The next day, my doctor called me and said that they had found a tumor on (not in) my bladder and I should see Dr. Fretz on June 9th. He said that it most likely was cancer. Hopefully after it comes out on June 24th, it will be out and the cancer will be removed. I will be hospitalized for a day or two (that part shocked me!) and then no lifting for 10 to 14 days!!! I will have to be checked every 3 or 4 months because it is likely that the tumor will return. Then....we start over again. Ugh!

Oh well....if it has to happen....then my guess is, this is the way to go!!!
