Our dear Scottie Friends Wally, Sammy would greatly appreciate it if
everybuddy would put their paws together for their Sweet Grandma...
It's us! Wallace and Samuel! We hope you are all keeping well (we're particularly looking at you, Stu).
About three weeks ago Oumie visited the dermatologist about a bump that had developed right on the top of her head. Long story short, the bump turned out to be a secondary indicator of cancer - the primary source being her lungs. After a battery of tests and scans the specialist surgeon confirmed that she has a larger lesion on her right lung and two smaller ones on her left lung, as well as the early stages of emphysema.
Yup...that is quite a bit to digest; in fact we're still trying to wrap our heads around it ourselves.
Oumie has taken the diagnosis surprisingly well and in a rather philosophical manner (Kyla would be proud). Mom...not so much - she is being strong and calm in front of Oumie and Grandpa and our Auntie Kym butt when she is at home with us and Dada she is very, very sad and cries at the drop of a stuffy.
We don't know what the prognosis or treatment plan is yet, mom is taking Oumie to see a cardio-thoracic surgeon on Monday. However, in the mean time dear friends, please could we ask you to send our Oumie POTP and prayers - she really needs it.
We will let you know how Monday's appointment goes.
BIG licks and much love,
Wallace and Samuel (and mom ... minus the licks...'cos that would be gross)
