PET scan says the new little tumor I am feeling is indeed cancer.  Also a couple of new spots near my aorta. 

The plan for now it to go ahead with the injection trial.  It will take a week or two for the blood tests to come back to for sure qualify, so I will have time to do my homework and make sure this is the best next step.

Honestly, I am feeling pretty devastated, if you know how that feels.

  4. Hi Alisa,

    I have been reading your posts for some time now and truly admire your courage and humor and honesty in dealing with your life, kids, love, and...unfortunately....melanoma. I do know how being utterly devastated feels. I am sorry you have had more than your share of that feeling...especially lately. I know it is hard to maintain energy for the fight with all its twists and turns...but it is clear that you are strong...and very much loved. Hang in there. C

  8. Alisa, I've been thinking of you so much lately. I am sorry you are feeling so devastated. You are dealing with so much and it all sounds overwhelming. So many life altering decisions. Time and again you have faced many devastating situations and yet you always prevail. I believe it will be no different this time. I'll keep praying that your path will be made clear, difficult decisions will seem obvious and any new tumors will soon be gone. Much love to you and your family.

  9. Thinking of you Alisa. I'm reading Enchanted April right now (only in the first chapter)...wish you and your best friends could escape to that castle in Italy for a while :). Love you

  10. Alisa, I've been reading your blog for a long time, and comment sporadically. I don't know how it feels for you that people you don't know are reading your story, so I refrain from bombarding you with comments, but I just feel compelled to tell you - you seem like a kindred spirit to me, and you've been through horrible lows before. You will come out on top - and you have so many people you don't even know about sending you strength and healing vibes right now. Hugs through the miles mama.
