Thanks for all of your prayers! I just returned home from the second trip to Mayo Clinic with my parents. My mom was diagnosed with lymphoma, more specifically Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, and we now have more answers. A bone marrow biopsy and many, many tubes of blood and being part of a clinical trial are part of what my Mom has and is experiencing. It looks like it will be a bumpy road, but she has put her trust in a wonderful doctor who has spent his career in studying lymphoma/leukemia. One of the things that surprised me, is the doctor's recommendation to drink green tea and eat red grapes, to help reduce internal inflammation. I am so glad to see "natural" foods being used to aid in healthcare!
Thanks again for all of your thoughts, prayers and kind words. They mean more than I can ever tell you.
