Today's update on my mother....

Thursday, February 07, 2013

33 days ago, my mother Beverly Troxell went into surgery at Bethesda North Hospital for removal of a large mass on her leg.

On February 1st 2013, we received some test results back from a pathology report that shows that she has been newly diagnosed with a form of bone cancer called Osteosarcoma.

On February 7, 2013 we went to her first of many oncology appointments.

From that appointment we learned the following…

She will have 2 appointments coming up, one will be on February 8th, 2013 at 3:30pm to see the plastic surgeon.

One will be on February 13th at 10:15am to see the vascular surgeon.

Then on March 6th, 2013 she will be going to possibly Bethesda North Hospital to have a CT scan done and also to have a port installed.

After that date, they will set up appointments to start chemotherapy treatments.

During her chemotherapy treatments, she will receive 4 cycles of chemotherapy either once a week or every 2 weeks.

Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers as we endure this process
